Thanks VF; In#4377 there appears to be a clearer `flatter` area behind the tail(100m) as opposed to the hillside,although there appear to be pylons/wires in the distance with possible departure that way or off to the left of the direction the a/c is facing. depending on any wind direction..?

What's left (if anything) ask yerself what do I need eXtra to escape & bingo, put Her down & off load something or, in this case turning it into wind & using the footy field sized pad in front of You would have probably saved a perfectly good Machine

I think they call it 'situational awareness' in the military.
Very few people have it to the extent this environment requires.
Respect!

G'day etudiant.....Yip it's certainly 'situational awareness' & it's also basic common bloody sense for survival in a limited power environment & there are numbers for this, just do it by the numbers, ain't that hard Cheers...HappyHappy
