    Default Here we go again! Not my fault, and I can prove it!

    I was enjoying a short flight over the beautiful Orbx Oregon scenery, from Elma Mun. (East of Bowerman) to Westport / 14S, West of Bowerman) Conditions were perfect, a great low & slow experience with my beautifully preserved de Havilland 80. I waved at he girls, and showed some perfect and impressive airman ship. It all went very well until my appearance at Westport. As you will see, it looks like a very low level conspiracy:

    It was my first visit there, there was no cross on the runway, I didn't receive any Notam, so DON't blame me! YES!

    Oh! That's where I left those things! Thanks for finding them for me.
    Sorry about all the expensive noises. I see you found Hardy's hole as well.

    Listen: I really hoped I would get some support here! I got bills for the tow truck, new underwear, calibrating all instruments, etc. etc. TSK!

    Ouch, Peer! That was certainly NOT a clear runway...that airfield needs to fire its groundskeeper...

    Well, I have heard of 'Pushing Up Daisys', but this looks ridiculous! You 'Landed Long' alright! Long time, and right into the marsh you were left! Ha.
