One question: how would drugs traffickers be able to afford airliners?

Another question, Rotate.

How?:

You’re making it seem like it!! :P

Well if you sell tons and tons of expensive cocaine picked and processed at low prices and sold at high prices, you’d be sure to make a tidy profit.

Not that you should…

… It’s just a gimmicky idea to attract interest! Other organizations use generic aircraft to move cargo around as well.

This is actually a quick and fun flight worth taking. Lots of good scenery, some nice sweeping turns, and airports right off the river. I needed an excuse to stay low!

@Rotate, yes on the playground, but this route is fun solo or in a group. I just looked at liveflight and saw you out there… Haha, nice call sign! Very inconspicuous :)

Good idea. Nothing suspicious about that at all! I bet if someone is controlling Portland when we arrive, they won’t even notice us sneaking in there over the river.
