  1. I thought I'd share this video of some bush flying fun near W52 Goheen
  2. Greetings! Last week I visited a friend in Battle Ground, WA, for a birthday/graduation event. The weather was perfect, the party was great fun (nothing like blowing off $600 of "safe and insane" fireworks for fun!!!), and all was good, reflected in the fact I was bone-tired when I returned home. My host lives two addresses down from Goheen Airport (W52), and he took me over there to see the place, knowing my interest in flight simulations. Cool little airport - grass runways/taxiways, limited apron parking, but a pretty good number of GA hangers for aircraft storage. The highlight was meeting Missus Goheen herself (Kay). Kay is reported to be in her mid-80's but looked like she was 50-something with a great smile and dancing eyes (yes, she is cute), riding her bicycle around the airport. She and Gordon (Mister Goheen, who was mowing the 07/25 landing strip when we visited) had taken a night flight on Saturday and were circling our fireworks show but we failed to see or hear them. Surprisingly, she knew about Orbx scenery, but not by name. She mentioned that they "put in a bridge" over the creek where there was none, although there is a bridge to some property in back. On the flip side, the taxiway back to the hanger area has a MONSTER dip in it that is not shown in the Orbx rendition, to the point I think a Cub would have a hard time getting out of it unless it had a good head of steam getting into it! Oh, and the last hanger closest to the taxi way? It has a *really* nice lime green Plymouth GTX in it, and a couple of Cirrus S22 (I think). The Orbx rendition is pretty accurate (minus the dip), although in reality the aircraft parked in the middle of the field consist of a bare-metal C320, a neglected C310, a Bonanza, and a C-172 (maybe earlier). Apparently, all of them are Gordon's planes - I am sure he would love the Duke that is depicted in the Orbx renditionl All in all, I was delighted with the visit and promptly took advantage of the year-end sale to purchase W52 Goheen upon my return! Took a couple of flights (a tail-dragger is NOT a good aircraft for W52!!!), and had fun re-running the trip north along I5 to the Chehalis Indian Reservation to buy a boat-load of fireworks. Took 90 minutes in the car, about 35 minutes in a C337. Still, I love Washington - speed limit is 70 MPH. I know: Not much flight simulation information in this post per se, but as the title says, it was a very nice collision of reality and simulation.

  5. W52 sits in beautiful rural Battle Ground, Washington. Surrounded by farms and floodplain it's mild seasons shine with the use of Russ White's wonderful NatureFlow combined with the power of ObjectFlow to provide animated and static trees and grasses year round. Here are some previews that showcase the beautiful nature in and around the airfield. Most shots are from fall.
