I've been attempting to catch this group during it's annual migration from Wisconsin to Florida for years.  And, today I'm happy to report that I succeeded.

They landed recently at the Russellville Alabama airport and are landlocked by weather.  Linda and I saw on their blog that they might be here, and ran down to Russellville (again this year) hoping to catch up with this amazing group.

As we pulled into the tiny airport, it was clear that they were here.  Several Operation Migration vehicles - visibly three trailers and a van.  In addition to the birds (that are always nicely protected from tourists and us media folks) one fan was visiting along with two of the pilots.

I've got a great 3 minute video of founder Joseph Duff sharing their amazing story.
