GMC SouthWings Flight on April 10

SouthWings conducted a flight for the Gulf Monitoring Consortium on April 10. The Gulf Monitoring Consortium is a unique partnership of SouthWings, SkyTruth, and the Waterkeeper Alliance that is systematically monitoring oil pollution in the Gulf of Mexico with satellite images and mapping, aerial reconnaissance and photography, and on-the-water observation and sampling. For this flight, New Orleans-based volunteer pilot Lance Rydberg flew with Paul Orr, the Lower Mississippi Riverkeeper, in his two-seat Citabria. Their route took them from New Orleans, parallel to the Mississippi River to the gulf and back, passing over several points of interest.  (You can read more about this flight on the SouthWings blog here.)
