This was for sure the Mission Yeti with the most participants ever.
We began with a short briefing at the soccer stadium of Lugano Cornaredo. Many thanks to Monze who organized the M.Y. very accurately. Especially the landing into the stadium with the authorization of the control tower of Lugano-Agno airport. Weather wasn't too bad, but started with the summit of Monte Boglia in the clouds... Hopefully only for about 100m. So we had to take-off in a deep white soup!!! A very interesting affair... Below the mist, we found good conditions and were able to climb in the thermics to assure long flights over Lugano.
