    Success it seems. Timelapse on TV 1 along with some fast processed pics.

    Shame they opened the floor to the armchair critics thoughts however

    Hoping to get somewhat good coverage then, got a couple family members aboard the flight.

    Would be nice. Whether they do it is another matter. It'll be whichever comes first. Requirement for ADS-B in controlled Airspace or replace them with ATR42 most likely.
