Thank you to all for the reporting from the Hobbs Contest.

I especially appreciate the work of Walt Rodgers to overlay the time lapse images
of the satellite maps with some of the pilots flight traces. These videos are
really interesting - especially if you like flying cross country and would like to improve.
