The Big Op

The Big Operation

This was our biggest desert operation. In June of 1999 we flew a rockoon to 72,000 feet in Black Rock, Nevada. Between the team, family and reporters there was over 70 people on the roster. The care and feeding of such a big crew for five days was more challenging than the mission itself.

We run much small crews in the field now. A team of around ten seems just about right. Although those five days back in 1999 were amazing.
