Too bad the second lot of runway material 'width' wasn't just used for a 90deg runway instead!
But it is a LUXURY runway compared to other options!
And boy was it windy!!! I had just come from flying in Reservoir (7.30am till 9am) and the wind was picking up by then, but by the time (9.40am approx) I FOUND the Keilor site it was a hurricane!
When I headed homewards, it was impressive watching the real jets heading into Tullamarine doing severe banks, something like 500ft above the freeway, to come around for the headwind runway! It looks impossible that they could fly so slow, and banked so much.... amazing.
Hey mate, yer yesterday was insane, as someone from the Aussy thread said "I'm not surprised a cow didn't fly past"
I can't get out today as I got a B-day to attend to but I plan on Sunday if the weather holds.
Still working on my jets and Tucano so I haven't got anything to fly atm apart from a UMX sukhoi
