It would seem that Maj. Dames did quite well on this target. So Ed if your out there congrats, well done. In addition I find the location data from Michele very interesting, I would like to see the rest of her data. I haven't checked Daz's linked info yet, but will get that done tonight. It is always interesting when a puzzle is solved and we can scale our RV data. Interesting indeed.

I will see what I can dig up. Not sure if I took notes. I can only re-post what I put up on the IRVA board. This happened right after I joined and I was still doing everything in my head as I had done for years.

Pretty sure I don't have any notes and I know I don't have any drawings. I can reconstruct the event, but other than be able to produce time stamped photo..that's probably about it.
