Upon arrival at the launching pad, Michel started breathing oxygen for the next 2 hours ; however, during that time the wind started picking up. By 8 o’clock, we sent out weather ballon to check the wind speed and did another test at 8h30 and at 9h00, i twas then decided to postpone the jump for the next day .
