Russ Owens flew 517kilometers in the Phoenix!

Jim -
Yesterday I flew a 517 Km flight in the Phoenix here at Parowan. It's posted on the OLC for 6-27-13. Last I checked it was the 5th highest scoring flight in the world for the day.
My flight earned me 1000 points here at the ASA motorglider fly-in and a pefect score for the day for the Stevenson trophy competition, formerly given for the motorglider national championships.
She's a sweet little plane, but I miss my 45/1 glide at 80 knots in the 26E!!! Still, lots of fun, and a good cross country touring machine for two also. The Phoenix CAN fly a XC soaring flight!
Best Wishes.
Russ
