Post subject: November 21st Sunday flight

Far before than Columbus, Vikings discovered America exploring the coasts of Greenland, and settling there their first communities. It's a long run by plane, imagine on a boat of one thousand years ago! Take the fastest jet engine you have in your hangar, but take a look on the length of the destination runway: only 6000 feet. And please notice we'll land there in the dark.

here some proof of our exploits, was quite funny with real weather winds blowing sometimes at 80 kts!

landing with a 33kts crosswind was quite eventfull I may add Razz

but the Tree Musquetiers acquited themselves valiantly from that task Wink

and yes it was a great fun flight Cool

No icing! Strong crosswind, high mountains and bad visibility at times were challenging enough...

We made it just fine and without causing that great 'ball of fire' at the end...

It was a nice flight and full of winter scenery after we got past the large expanse of water. The approach was fun as well as the terrain was around 3500ft just miles from the 100ft above sea level runway. While it wasn't quite a 'drop like a brick' approach, combined with the crosswinds coming through the channel and the runway being on the edge of the water, made it so you had to pay attention... Wink

Good job Fled and Snorre who braved the approach all the while I was listening on the radio....
