I decided this time to deliver a brand new CRJ-900 to China Express and their home base of ZUCK. The route took me from Mirabel (CYMX) nonstop to Wrangell (PAWG). ‘‘Twas a quick fuel stop and then we continued up to Nome (PAOM) where the wx was down close to minimums with gusting crosswinds.
I used the LDA-C approach into Wrangell which has an 8 degree offset due to terrain followed by the Level Island Three ODP which required a 50 degree turn after 400’ for the same terrain issues. Upon reaching Nome, the weather was 2SM vis with -RA but howling winds out of the SE. proceed with the procedure turn for the LOC/DME BC Rwy 10 and landed for a well deserved night stop.
Continuing this morning nonstop to Ignatyevo (UHBB) and then the final leg to Chungking. Call sign is China Express 9988 if you want to follow.
