Just now catching up on the site and Inet access, from Israel. FABULOUS UPGRADES! Great job, Brian! The satellite imagery is great, the new maps are great, and it's nice to see the flight-following section with near real-time tracking.

We're in Israel now, staying with John's sister in the small settlement of Ely on the West Bank. Will be working on our next installment later today. We're probably going to have to delay a little longer here, since we've lost BOTH our transponders, had to fly up the Persian Gulf into Jordan and then into Israel with inop transponders. We have a replacement being rushed to Ben-Gurion airport via FedEx, and will try to install it as soon as it gets here and we can shake it loose from Customs. Probably looking at a Friday departure, but we should know more tomorrow.
