Did anyone else see the deer and parked chopper?

The other advantage of Gunton Park is that the strip clearly shows up from a distance, being a different shade of green, making getting lined up on finals much easier.

Hi Frank,

Many thanks for turning up. Tom and Fred too. You must have all timed your departures well, since we all arrived within about ten minutes or so.

Using IVAO's weather, we had great conditions for an evening flight.

I'll try to set up another one; more correctly another opportunity. Depends how the cookie is crunched as to which evening. Easiest is just to post if I'm doing an evening flight and it's there if anyone wishes to join.

I was relieved London Control left us to our own devices. Sometimes, understandably, they need the company and offer a flight information service and that constrains using Unicom for position reports.

I like Gunton Park. Decent strip, trees and deer.

Since the weather looks OK and to check this PC is also OK, I might try a VFR flight this evening, on line.

If anyone's interested in trying it, the destination is Farmstrips FSX's Gunton Park. It's due North of Coltishall and marked on the CAA chart. If anyone wants to join, we'll use a fly in format, so departures must be from different fields, of your own choice. Since it's my bat, I'm leaving from Newcastle, where I'm currently testing. I'll aim to get there about 2000 local time.

Gunton has an 800 metre strip, so aircraft choice is a bit wider than at some farms. Runway is North South and you're requested to make an initial low pass, to scare deer off the strip.

If SWMBO puts the mokkers on it I'll post ASAP.
