Took the experimental AN-2 Turbine Ag Truck , [without spray boons), out to the Channel Islands from Santa Barbara, late afternoon.

Top down view shows the rugged nature of the islands. There is an air strip below the aircraft, at about 7 o'clock.

Christy strip. Descent straight into the late afternoon sun. AN-2 can hold 55 kia in steep dive due to its massive flap area.

Coming in heavily nose down. No problems other than sun.
