    Lightbulb Flying The Humpy!

    I recently did this flight and the Columbia River is beautiful, especially in MSFS20. Teamspeak barely uses any resources so having real comms does not interfere with flying at all. Plus the group is pretty funny.

    See you there Saturday morning.

    Columbia River “Humpy”
    by Zoolander64
    The Columbia River is the largest river in the Pacific Northwest region of North America. The river rises in the Rocky Mountains of British Columbia, Canada. It flows northwest and then south into the US state of Washington, then turns west to form most of the border between Washington and the state of Oregon before emptying into the Pacific Ocean. The river is 1,243 miles (2,000 km) long, and its largest tributary is the Snake River. Its drainage basin is roughly the size of France and extends into seven US states and a Canadian province. The fourth-largest river in the United States by volume, the Columbia has the greatest flow of any North American river entering the Pacific.

    Although the below flight plan Direct-To, make sure to follow the Columbia river!

    Last Saturday morning was a fun flight up part of the Columbia River. Around 15 of us were connected on DigitalThemePark.com TS3. But I saw a lot of other flyers with us that were not part of the flight conversation. If you were one of them, please join in with us next Satuday.
