And the USA Tourist made it to the State of Tenesse

Oh Boy!
The city of Memphis Tenesse is very big! And in our approach descent to RWY 18R lookd amazing.
Well... you have to count with JWocky looking for a taxiway. or in the proper aircraft, to be satisfied on a patch of grass :mrgreen:

Great job everyone.
Very entertained two-staged USA tour Leg 46th. The first half accounted clouds, low atm pressures, some precipitations (snow in Chicago), and insane crosswinds the whole duration of the flight, to a very challenging landing in Olney, IL.
Whereas the second day, only had some moderated (up to 10 Kts) winds without the gusts, and much better and elevated atm pressures. Great visibility.
Beautiful scenery of the Mississipi and Ohio river flats, and beautiful Midwest Scenery.

A challenge. A pleasure. Amazing company.

Thanks to all pilots who joined.

A few screenshots below, the whole series can be seen in the screenshot's repository for the USA tour:

If we gave everybody in the World free software today, but we failed to teach them about the four freedoms, five years from now, would they still have it? Probably not, because if they don’t recognise their freedoms, they’ll let their freedoms fall

Hey, I was in a plane that was built when there were no concrete runways. WWI bases were just grass patches mostly. So when I accidentally cut off Side, how could I possible ignore this nice looking patch of light green freshly mowed grass?

That was awesome. That's exactly where your WWI bird wanted to nest.
Asphalt scratches its rolls as we saw in Olney when it took the first chance to get out of the gray! :P

quite fast for the big tires.!! :D



There is no denying. lol

80 kt is pretty much the approach speed for the PA-20, so it was very hard to keep it steady.

Isn't it funny, I didn't have any computer or software issues all the way until late approach when FG started freezing up and put me in the ground. I wish I was in those snaps after landing. :cry:

Being my first time on the "Tour" it was a lot of fun.
