3hr AATs for all classes set in the southern sector due to unpredictable thunderstorm activity, particularly in a line moving down from the north. First launch 1240.
As for the mid air yesterday, this is from the official website:
" Midair collision between two 15-Meter class gliders happened at around 15:30, about 30 km southwest of Uvalde.
Loius Bourderlique of France (glider FB) was able to fly back to Uvalde and land safely. Peter Hartmann of Austria (glider PC) bailed out and rode his parachute to a good landing. He was picked up by helicopter, returned to the Uvalde airfield, then taken to a local hospital for precautionary checks."
Both pilots were at briefing this morning.
