Cool shots, which island airport?

To be honest, I can't really tell you....I was flying around a few islands, and then wanted to try a difficult approach at night, that has you descend over the crest of a hill...and then a rather steep fast descent to the threshold. I advanced the time to night ops...and did a downwind from the right, left sweep over the hill to final, and the rest is history.  Had me holding my breath, though! :)  

 

The pictures in my other recent post (A cold and blustery day), at the end, shoots the island in the daytime. That might give you some sort of hint...:)

Mitch, that's hilarious. You are really an enthusiast pilot. Please switch the daylight back on, slew up and tell us where you landed,  :smile:

Not for me, not familiar enough with all of the islands.

 

PS: Are you still happy with your SMP3 clouds?

"Hey Hans, ..LOL...at least I am honest...h*ll if I know where I was...LOL...but the scenery and island hoppin'...was LOTS OF FUN!  :)))))))  LOLOLOL!"

 

About the clouds, actually yes.  I think they look good..but of course, want SMP4, that will be written to XP11's best use thereof.   For now, though...yeppers...SMP3 is doing the job.  Waiting though...for the SMP4 upgrade path....
