As sunset approaches along the U.S. East Coast, the America’s Challenge Command Center reports two balloons still on “flying” status. Team 5, Andy Cayton and Kevin Knapp, just crossed over the Florida coast north of Panama City after spending several hours over the Gulf of Mexico. Team 4, Richard Abruzzo and Carol Rymer Davis, are also reported to still be in the air. The last position the Command Center received for them was north of Mobile, AL.
The Command Center reports that Team 3, Barbara Fricke and Peter Cuneo, have landed safely in the Pensacola, FL area. The leaders, Team 13, Wilhelm Eimers and Greg Winker, are safely on the ground south of Savannah, GA, very close to the Atlantic coast.
