Very interesting place

Recommended Posts

Makes for some very tricky landings with the Icon. I found Obvious Coronet4 sitting at the bottom of the deepest gorge lake.

Nice Screenshots Jack! I really ought to have a go!  ^_^

 

     I see that you are taking photos of your computer screen to get a screenshot of the map...cut the hassle and get FRAPS. :P

Its really easy to use and can record anything.

Took on the challenge ... :P

     Very difficult indeed. Even harder without the HUD!  Found myself stalling quite a lot when climbing out. Quite a challenge, if you haven't had a try, you should.



Found the gorge, now going down ....

Spiralling down, very quickly.

Very nice screen shot set. Yes you need a really tight spiral on the way down to touch down. Took me many attempts. I also walked or fell down, that was really weird trying to climb out again through all the strange artifacts.

As I started over the edge my altitude was 2618 ft.

My descent to the lake.

This was my second attempt at landing; I was not paying attention to my airspeed and stalled it into the drink “pilot error”.  :blush:  Altitude reading 0 ft.

I parked it on shore, exited the plane to look over the side.

Great shots Jack!
Getting out of a 2618 ft deep gorge certainly deserves recognition!  :lol:

Must be one of those "daredevil" Pilots...

 

     Steve - Thanks for finding this location. I'll document it (crediting you of course), and hopefully it could be made an Aerocache one day... making sure that you have to physically land the aircraft on the lake! It'll make a great challenge indeed!

 

All the best,

Kavinda

@ Air1 Thanks Steve! Hanging in there. :smile:

 

@ KavindaJD Thank you for the recommendation in P #6 I'll take a look at it. :wink:

 

And a very good day to all! B)

That looks like a job for a helicopter - I wonder if they were ever planned for Flight...?

     I think they did ... but never got round to it.  There's a message about helicopters when you load up a new flight.

 

@ Jack - Good to hear that you are doing well! I wouldn't be surprised to find you flying around in Flight, during treatment!  :lol:

All the best and keep going!  :lol:
