Troy Bradley has now been aloft 24+ hours and is currently north of Oklahoma City, OK [N36°409323, W97°307839]. In his latest message, Troy was flying at 1,000 ft. agl heading 40° at 13mph and said: "At the moment, it's just a nice evening flight."
Earlier today, Troy was headed for Vance AFB and was told to climb to avoid training aircraft. This ascent increased his speed to 20+mph and his heading to 90°, more east than he wanted. He said he was "extremely busy" until he cleared the area and was allowed to descend.
For those of you asking for more pictures, the request is in. The crew has the balloon in sight, but say they're not close enough to get a good picture, but will try.
