AIUI this repo doesn't actually have a default head or an ongoing
"master" branch, hence it fails to check anything out after cloning.

Instead you should manually checkout the head corresponding to the
flight you are interested in. Check out "git remote -r"'s output and
        git checkout -b fligh-8416 origin/flight-8416
