Post subject: October 2nd Sunday flight

Mmm, it took a bit more than usual, but here is a plan with several unusual details, as discussed last Sunday. At first, almost the whole path runs along intersections, so forget about VOR's or NDB's and tune your GPS; then, there's a mandatory intermediate stop, so to have time to change the film into the camera, as I guess there will be many pics to be taken.

The particularly beautiful premises deserve much attention, and I hope the weather will be good enough to increase our enjoying it. For the purpose, we switch back once you again to our beloved Howard, so start polishing it Cool

Hiya, Jerry,

as long as the reason for your defection is such a happy circumstance, that's more than welcomed, and I guess now we will all start waiting impatiently for you to offer us the usual cigars Wink

Keep us updated on the event!

I had a nice flight when the computer was cooperating. Unfortunately, I was having a conflict between the new sound and video cards. It seemed to only be when I had Teamspeak up, though it did have a little problem afterward when TS was down. It kept changing the settings to 16 color mode and smallest number pixels. It was seriously making me mad. I did however get to the final destination just as Marco left the server. I saw him then I saw him leave. I also had better visibility when I landed. I could see the field at about 8 miles out. I touched down nicely. I did get a few great piccies though, and here they are.

Ready for take off.

Wow, great bloody red sunset piccies, Wingnut! Impressing indeed!
Surprised
It was a very interesting flight, and the intermediate stop added to the fun, so expect to find it more often in the future.

In particular, this was the case where our ATC showed all his skill, as our final destination was totally immersed in dense fog - please see the last two screenshots to get an idea of what I could see; when I realised my good sight was completely useless, I went in panic, and wasn't able to stick to instruments either, so it was just Wolter's patience and precision to drive me safe on ground... well, as a rule, I missed the runway, but just for a few meters, and the sole fact I made it in one piece was satisfactory enough to me Mr. Green

Hope you get things sorted on your end soon Wingy, we've all been there at one time or another and we all know how frustrating those kinds of problems can be.

The landing was one the hardest landing's we've done to date and did I ever appreciate having a good ATC...:D

Like Marco said, visibility was very limited and you couldn't see the runway approach lights until approx. 300ft away! AND....the RW threshold is on the edge of a cliff! WOW....Watching the instruments, listening to our ATC and bit a luck, we all got down in one peice...lol

Great job everyone!!

So, writing from the hotel - sorry that it looks like I'm a guest!

Anyway, was a great flight - both landings were fun! The first was a great example of an off-centreline appoach, and the second one was just HAIRY! Actually, I suppose we should be thankful that we didn't tackle the second approach last!

Anyway - trust your instruments, and practice those ILS approaches! I was thinking of writing a short 'how to' on ILS, but only if people are interested...?

Anyway - 'til the next cliff-top adventure - salute to the ATC and Route Planner!!!!

Sure was a fun flight and yes Deenee, I think some kind of instructional flight would be good for all of us. Fled has done the ILS instrument approach lesson in the past, but this is something we all need to brush up on now and again..:wink:

Twisted Evil Wait till you fly into the CC Wilderness Camp. It can be a tricky landing if the weather is really bad too. High mountains all around. I love the place, and I even have my favorite cabin picked out. I stay there often. Of course that is until my cabin is built not too far from there.
