It's been snowing in Shetland, too...:


we weren't going anywhere yesterday...


..but flyable this morning..


..which gave us time to get to Point of Fethaland lighthouse..


returning via the west side of Mainland to Sumburgh before the sun went down (at 5 to 3 in the afternoon)

Sometimes you are on the sunny side...

Why would they want to do that?

Mind you, same question goes for the landing direction - I'm sure this one view doesn't tell the whole story

nice to see the grammar police haven't descended on Titusville for the surplus apostrophe - yet

I dare say the only person that would require an explanation, if actually required, is the Chief Pilot....

Merry Christmas all!

Looking at the rego, I'd say he used the wrong fuel and has a CG issue as a result

I imagine the explanation is that the patient has an anti social personality disorder and the landing position is a regular set up for unloading such individuals.
