Lydeway approach



A bit of an experiment this, coming back to the strip today (Lydeway), I put the G10 into video mode, propped it up on top of the instrument panel and switched it on. This is the approach to the westerly runway, and as you can see it crosses the railway line on short final. If I can see a train coming I'll hold off, or go-around. The trees that line the strip on the left during the final part of the approach and the rollout make a great hiding place for deer. For some reason they (so far) only seem to hide in the first third of the runway; I've had to go around three or four times because of walking wildlife in the two-and-a-half years that I've been at the strip.
