The Great Cherokee Adventure, Leg 1 - 6S8 to WY06

Recommended Posts

After a few months off from flight sim, its time to get back into things. I have a great trip planned for the next few flights. Here is leg 1 of the Great Cherokee Adventure.

(I used the A2A Cherokee, BlueSky photoscenery, ASN, and REX Essentials Plus. Sectionals courtesy of Skyvector)

 

We start our flight in Montana at Laurel 6S8 just outside of Billings.

Flight navigation is accomplished by hard IFR - I follow roads. Just in case we get lost, we have the Billings VOR.

Before long, the nice farm land below turns to mountains.

Somehow the road still goes here. Must be some drive.

The sun begins to set as we come up on the airport.

We spot the airport. Luckinbill WY06 is a narrow, unpaved private airport. Should be fun, don't you think?

We carefully fly our pattern, keeping a watchful eye on the rising terrain.

These narrow strips always seem to come up fast.

Made it! Doesn't seem to be much here. I guess we will be camping out tonight! Thanks for viewing!
