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)

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) :)
