Scared!

Recommended Posts

Chasing after Aerocaches at night is not for the faint of heart!

 

On the runway at Hanamaulu - I'll keep the landing lights on for the duration of the flight.

Climbing out with the Wailua Valley all lit up behind me.

Once I get into the Waimea Canyon, the darkness is complete!

After a lot of near-crashes, I finally spot the Aerocache, perilously close to the trees.

Barking Sands is my destination - can't wait to get down.

I have never been so happy to end a flight. Night flying in canyons is not for me. :rolleyes:

I have done some very dark night jobs and arrived at very short unlit airstrips surrounded by tall trees, great fun getting down in one piece.
