Last but not least, this is us riding the localizer backcourse into Ottawa a few days ago. Basically we line ourselves up with the runway about 10 miles back, then descend when the charts tell us there are no mountains / buildings / cel towers in the way.

I have flown maybe a thousand IFR approaches but I still get a thrill when we bust through the cloud base and the runway is in front of us like it should be.

I would write more but I'm tired after a long flying day (I'm in Providence at the moment) and a week of packing and unpacking. I'll youtube some vids of our new house soon; in an effort to make sure we unpack in a timely fashion, Lisa invited 25 relatives over for Thanksgiving this coming Sunday. No pressure ;)

What sort of gizmo are you showing with the blue and red dots? Satellite wx? What are the blue dots?

And I see a lot of bread crumb trails between all the dots ... what pray tell might they represent? Thanks for the peek into your world.

Thanks for sharing. Flying in clouds makes me nervous, but that's was TCAS is all about isn't it?

cool, and I remember landing on that same runway in a Katana, over one of those large planes. Same view....but a much different plane.

This is good stuff.

I enjoy your videos, thanks. Good to see what the jets are like. Maybe I'll take the flip up next time I fly, albeit in a lowly Commander 114 :)
