Tapini to Girua PNG

Recommended Posts

Yet another PNG tour!  This time from TAP to AYGR (approx. 35 nm east of Kododa).  Using P3DV3, PTA & Lionheart's Super Piper Pacer Bush, FL120, late afternoon flight.


Left Tapini, followed valley north until I could climb out to cross the mountains, then due east toward the bay.



Dialed in GUA NDB, 224 KHz, southeast of my position, but I flew on toward the bay for the ocean views.  (I guess just for me because I didn't snap any pics)



Once the NDB showed to be due south I turned toward it and continued, crossing the Kamusi River (below)



Town of Popondetta below me



Airport visible in the upper right corner, getting ready to turn final



Landing rwy 03



Clean up!



Taxi to parking, get something to drink & eat



Thanks for flying along, hope you enjoyed your flight!  I know I did! :)

Spectacular mountain scenery and a brave flight in such a small plane.

Martyn, you are right, but bush flying is a brave undertaking in any plane in that environment (or so I'm told) :)
