Overcast and cool this morning with haze.   Pleasant temperature and smooth air, for a change.   Richard flew first after the warm-up pilots and unfortunately zeroed figure 7 and had to break.   The rest of his flying was fairly neat and scoreable, with some axis errors.   Due to the poor horizon and starting altitude needed, orientation was difficult, he said.
Paul flew sixth and made it around OK, his flying improving through the sequence.   He managed to work down to the front of the box, but was out on the downwind side a couple of times.
No scores up yet, so we will wait and see.   Other pilots in our group have zeroed some figures and a SA in the MXS had to break also.

We have worked with the Swiss to design the 2nd Unknown, and have submitted it to the Jury.   Whether we get to fly it remains to be seen.
