2019.09.11 Weather for a new high flight record?

After the Forcast predicted high waves due to the polar jet, Klaus planned to use this day for a new high flight record!

The Perlan team also wanted to use the day to improve their previous altitude record.

Thomas and Chrisitan accompanied Klaus up to flight level 195. Only Klaus had a special permission to climb above this altitude VFR with IFR flight plan.
