Lenticular clouds stack up in California

January 13, 2010 by Alton K. Marsh, Senior Editor, AOPA Pilot

This is similar to the photo of lentucular clouds near French Valley Airport northeast of San Diego that I referred to in this month’s AOPA Pilot SkyCatcher story. I thought pilots might like to see it. It was taken by Mike Fizer, our chief photographer, 30 minutes before he took the cover shot for the January Pilot. Here’s a link to the SkyCatcher story . The shot I referred to had the SkyCatcher in the air with this in the background, but the airplane was shaded by a cloud, so the shot wasn’t chosen for the article.

    Beautiful. John and Martha should add that to their graphics library.

    Lovely, aren’t they? Am told that sailplane records are set riding the winds that create them. Frankly, they scare the wits out of me. Think Steve Fossett.
