Fantastic stretch of river you captured very well . I am glad you gave yourself plenty of airspace over Hanford , it is suspected to be leaking nuclear waste again .  >:(  >:(

I've read a bit about Hanford because of this tour and it's really embarrassing what happend and happens with the nuclear waste and the environment there. >:(

I'm sorry Mike, couldn't help you with the whistle problem. Haven't noticed strange noises so far, but i will listen to the engine when i'm back from work this afternoon. Maybe Edward Snowden isn't in Moscow anymore, but in your An-2 in Nicosia. :D

 

 

Thanks a for your kind comments mates. They are much appreciated. ::)

A "Dam"ned good tour Karsten, with my speacial thanks for the exploration of Hanford Nuclear Facilities- I had alread planned to pay it a visit later this summer, if the ATC allows  8) !

Thanks a lot Gerold. The Columbia is more a sequence of reservoirs than a river. I think this was my first and last visit of Hanford. It's not a beautiful place, just desert and radioactive waste. 

 

 

Great set again, lovely trip again, thanks to share this!

Thanks a lot Dolf!

And the dunes in the last one look fantastic!

All supergreat!

 

 

Outstanding set of shots here Karsten. Your water, clouds and other settings are absolutely perfect for this area of North America. Thanks for taking the time to share these with us. :)

 

 

Thank you very much Christoph and Jocko. ::)
