Visiting Orange County
Welcome, all! This is the first event of my new flyout series, titled Pingu’s Event Series X.X. In this series, we will be exploring various different airports scattered around the world that have significant meaning to me. Some of these airports include Narita Airport, Providenciales, and Los Angeles. At the end of this thread, there is a poll allowing you all to decide which airport should be next on the list. :) John Wayne Airport in Orange County, California is a regional airport with diverse destinations. These destinations include locations that range from Newark, New Jersey all the way to San Francisco up in the Bay Area. I will be doing this flyout for one of my good friends, @Thunderbolt. SNA is his home airport, and I know that he loves correcting people on their incorrect usage of procedures in Orange County. :)
Airport: John Wayne Airport
NOTAM: In the event that IFATC is present at the event, please follow all instructions and act professionally at all times throughout the event. I am not responsible for any violations/ghostings you main gain. Realistic procedures will be used.
