Vancouver Island Revisited

Recommended Posts

Another flight for you to look at, and it's Vancouver Island again, but bare with me for this one, I'll move onto somwhere else next time :pilotic:

It was Rex, Gex and Utx, and real world weather again, and I planned for a nice summer time take off at dawn in the Ant's Tiger Moth, hoping to get a few shot's worthy of this months screen shot competion ;) .

I'm sorry to say that British Columbia gets a lot of rainfall in the course of a year and today was going to be no exception :( .

Here's the flight plan: CYAZ Tofino to CAK4 Woss


Taking off from CYAZ Tofino, raining a bit but hoping it will clear up later on.


Just starting to get into the mountains with Long Beach and Tofino way behind me.


Still a bit overcast but at least it's stopped raining for a minute :smile:


This looks like Muchalat Lake below, and Oktwanch peaks to my right (I think ;) )


Turned out to be a nice day after all, so I made a shot from the cockpit to show how it all looks from the pilots seat :smile:


Running into a bit of a storm again and it's not going to make finding my destination easy, buy at least the Tiger Moth has GPS ;)


There's Woss airfield but it seem's to have a river running though it, must have been caused by all this rain??? (or maybe it's a UTX Fail :( ).


Trying to get lined up here, but am more than a bit put off by the river and am going a shade to fast! but I think I can pull it off ;)


!!!Wrong!!!, should have gone round again, I was going to fast and forgot there are no brakes to speak of on this thing, and ended the flight with another prang up :(

But at least I did get a few good shot's for this months comp, and saw some more stunning scenery on Vancouver Island before I move onto some other place :smile:

Thanks for looking in...Graham...

Looked so pretty I created a flight plan and flew it myself. Great area for low and slow valley flying. Thanks for the heads up to a great spot for sightseeing. Excellent pic's.
