An afternoon landing in the mountains

This week I am on vacation in Sun Valley, Idaho. On our way here I noticed a small airport in a difficult location and looked up flights into it. I decided to try one of these flights from Salt Lake City into this airport (Friedman memorial airport).

I did this flight on the expert server at 12:50 in the afternoon. My route took me out across the Salt Lake and over some flatlands as I descended into the mountains for a close space landing in an E170, old united livery.

I would very much recommend this airport for flying in and out of. It is very cool to be that close to the mountains and yet it isn’t a very hard airport to get in and out of. I would like to do this flight again if we got the e-jet rework done and use the modern United livery. Thanks for scrolling through.
