Strong wind but clouds

Today we were pessimistic that we have clouds to measure. But as it this are our last days were we are allowed to close the airspace, we still wanted to test how some new set-up ideas behave under strong wind.

It was a nice surprise that we actually had clouds to measure, also the winds get really strong higher up. Unfortunately our wind measurements were not working, but we estimated at least 50 km/h of wind speed. The instrument was heavily shaking and there was quite some tension on the main tether, but the winch brought everything down in one piece.
