Re: recon

Bloodtar -- the important thing to get is that it is just the airplane's second ob on this flight (note the "FRANCES OB 02" at the bottom) and that they were at 20.4N & 69W at the time of the observation - or about 2 degrees further south and 3 degrees further east of the center of circulation (note the 50204 and 69010 readings in the 3rd and 4th groupings in the second line of code). They are heading there, but aren't there yet. Actual vortex fix is scheduled for near 6z, or 2a ET.
