Arrival & Unpacking - Phase 1

Both Henry and Michi successfully arrived at MXP (Milan) airport yesterday. They collected their boxes and everything was in good condition. They grabbed their rental vehicles and loaded up for the 140km trip to the AirBnB that the team has acquired for the upcoming event. Pictures are coming in so the connectivity seems good so far!
Everything in good shape.
Once at the airBnB they settled in and got some much needed rest. Up early this morning, Michi started the usual assembly process.
Assembly underway.
Henry also got his Element ready and after some breakfast, they headed off to find a suitable flying site. As they are there early they will do some site scouting for the team :-) The site they chose was approximately one hours drive from the guesthouse.

Practice underway.
Henry says conditions are nice at this flying site but the temps are high at 36ยบ C so keeping cool with proper hydration is important.

As the time zone change will effect my blog reports, I may add more info to this one once evening reports flow in from the guys.
