The video shown below shows the arrival to London City, […]
I was very fortunate to take a trip to Hayman Island recently. To get there, we flew on Virgin Airlines from Sydney direct to Great Barrier Reef Airport on Hamilton Island. Approaching from the South and descending into downwind before turning for a Northern final, it’s best to be sitting on the right hand side of the aircraft […]
According to the KOSH TAF, a few searches on weather websites and a tweet from @toriafly the weather seems to be turning a bit ugly over Oshkosh this afternoon. I’m due to be flying over Wittman airport en route to Outagamie County Regional Airport (Appleton) in about 30 mins but the board is now showing […]
