I took the Caudron from KAVX, around to Avalon. Used all the runway to take off, & had a closer look at the town using the Drone Camera. TTM (MSFS) This shows much of the character of Catalina Island that has been captured so well by Ken & Tim- windswept, with sparse vegetation. (The Island I mean) The nose is obscuring the cruise ship at Avalon. I like the way MSFS does cloud shadowing on the water. A nautical trio. The Boat Club. Stunning tile work. They look like painted ceramic tiles, & they have been aged to reflect the impact of the elements. Top class.
Undeterred I ventured out again & remembered something from flying the Spitfire - take off with no flap! The C430 flaps are a pair of French stable doors worked into the wing. Massive. So a ton of drag is provided. I departed with zero flap & successfully lifted off. I don't think the engine is overly hot rodded so the take off run was reasonably lengthy, but I cleared the fence at Shoreham & did a circuit & landed. TTM (MSFS) Up & away! The rail bridge. Do Orbx trains traverse this?? A room with a view. I was rather hoping the expanse behind the dashboard wasn't a fuel tank, in case of an 'arrival'! Someone needs to cut the grass! Sat here for a couple of minutes looking for the phone number of a dry cleaner & did observe many vehicle movements on the aprons, including the infamous fork lift, looking for something to impale!
