His missions included both the first trip to the fully assembled Mir space station in 1996 (STS-79) and the last docking of a space shuttle at Mir in 1998 (STS-91). Paul has written about his experiences in a highly rated book available on Amazon. He will talk about talk about what it took to fly the shuttle, and how a life in aviation informed flying the shuttle… and vice versa.

CAUTION – Sandhill Cranes migration starting!

The Fall migration has started along the Foothills, at about the 1,500′ elevation, where they can ride any thermals,
or, today, they are riding the 30 kt south wind, so their ground speed is about 60 kts.

Note that they will be flying at 4,000 ft and above, and fly in wide ‘V’ formations of 50+ birds.

If they find a strong thermal they will spiral up, single file, to over 10,000′ before reforming their ‘V’ formation again.

So, be careful flying along the Foothills, or crossing them…. they are nordo and no ADSB.
