So I'm Sitting at KLAS, Minding my own Business

Recommended Posts

So I'm Sitting at KLAS, minding my own business, not having been able to take at flight for almost six weeks (hiatus due to programming duties). Need an easy flight, nothing to taxing, back to the desert. It took me a little more than seven minutes to tune in and prepare, and I looked up and saw this 757 patrol past...

I wonder how many times I've been in Vegas and felt like I wanted to escape back home to Santa Monica. This time, I had to patiently wait my turn, but the escape was complete and screen shots turned out to be pretty OK too. Thought I'd share my experience with everyone, and the desert of California is beautifull, isn't it though?

Great shots of a little Cessna with all those liners, I hope you were watching your temp gauges closely. I would have called the tower & requested to return the the hanger had a beer ok a six pack & waited hopefully the runway would slightly lighten up the go flying. Kenny

Larry, Kenny, Slammer, Adam, Gary, Darren, Pugilist, and the KCD...Thanks guys!


You're all right. Sitting in the conga reminded me of that movie Contact. The scene where Dr. Arroway is stapled into the sphere, and it's shaking so much that all she can say is "I'm OK to go, I'm OK to go", pale as a ghost.


But once into the wind, the tank is like an old Porsche, or maybe a KCD Benz, its nose dips down and its pure speed across the desert. Fitting, as flying so close to Edwards, always reminds me of the sonic booms I used hear way back when.


Best Regards

Caution wake turbulence in front and keep your speed up you have a 737 behind you...


No pressure right ???


That's an actual radio call I had from tower on a real SEL flight into KORF - seems appropriate here...


NICE set !
