Pegasus and crew are ready to get under way from the dock at Michoud Assembly Facility in East New Orleans pending a weather decision later today. Weather forecast does show winds prohibiting departure of Pegasus diminishing in the afternoon. Current winds up to 25 knots — that’s about 30 miles per hour — are expected to drop to around 15 knots or 17 miles per hour during the afternoon. Cloudless skies and very cool temperatures are making for a very pleasant morning in the New Orleans area.
Take a look at this video shot by Marshall television producer Mick Speer of the roll put to the dock, loading and securing the cargo doors of Pegasus; plus some video of Pegasus at the dock over the weekend.
