    Glad to help out Matt! And it worked out great; since I worked on Saturday, I’m off today (Monday), which is my birthday! I guess you got to see how a 206 is NOT a Porter too huh? We get off right at the 75% marker. I’m guessing the Porter is lifting off A good bit before that.

      Yeah, got a cool video of you departing over our heads! Porter tends to get airborne about mid-way along. With that wind and a light load we’d be wheels up by the terminal!
