    Hey, look what I found! I didn't mean to come back here, as I had no idea it was on the way.

    Yet after getting clearance, I was informed it was runway 9. The tower did not accept my complaint.

    But we must adjust to curveballs, and the TBM is such a honey that I didn't mind having to change my plans.

    Pretty captures of your dusk to night flight out of Vegas James. I like the dusk sky colors.

    Very nice set James! I don't understand those red lights either.

    Those are warning lights on wind turbines. They sit in a literal wind tunnel in between Mt. San Jacinto and Mt. San Bernardino. I've been through there when the wind literally knocked cars and semis of the road. Very interesting place.

    Nice shots!

    I can well remember when first arriving in "Lost Wages" in the 60's the cabbies always were friendly and took you right away to your destination. Though on the first trip there I was suprised to see all the slot machines on the seat backs which took all amounts of change.

    However when leaving "Lost Wages" before heading to the airport the cabbies always demanded full fare plus tip in cash before you even boarded the cab. Then once aboard they suggested you might want to "change your luck" by gambling your leftover change on the seat back slots!

    Thanks Michael, good to see you around. Don't be a stranger!

    Those are great stories about LAS, as honestly, I wouldn't doubt them at all. The one time I visited I noted that the only place without machines was usually the bathroom.
