Hi Mr. Bill ("Oh, no! Sluggo!!! ;)
As you might surmiZe, one of the first thingZ student pilotZ are
taught iZ how to determine wind direction close to the ground when
there iZ no local reporting or wind sockZ/vanes (smokestack plumes,
movement of dust clouds stirred up in fields, wavelets on water,
rolling tumbleweeds, Dorothy's house whizzing by ... :)
As such, I would endeavor to remain upwind of said boviniferous
emissions (a major source of greenhouse gaZeZ, BTW! ;) above almost
any other maneuvering consideration, short of colliding with another
aircraft also attempting to avoid the "bouquet"!
All Z BeZt,
