I did something really stupid

Recommended Posts

Virtually, that is lol

 

I had a choice - go above the clouds and maybe get stuck on top, or go below and barely maintain VFR through the murk.  All the fields along my route were reporting VFR so I decided to "man up" and descend under the cloud layer.  I flew this online and I'm not going to lie, it was really a white knuckle sort of flight.  A couple of times I slowed down because I could barely see the route ahead.

 

If this were real world and I wasn't smart enough to turn around I would have asked for an IFR (and probably declared) and climbed straight up through the murk (well not straight up, there's no JATO lol)

 

I went from WHP to SBD and essentially followed the 210 freeway the entire way.

 

Doesn't look so bad right?

So that's what 3 miles looks like  Eeek!

The speed limit on the 210 is 70mph so watch your speed!

I'm glad Ryan quoted that before you edited it.

 

 

Mind you, that flight would have loosened the bowels a bit.
