Flying Over A Recent Lava Flow in Nicaragua

Route: MHTG to MNMG
Between waypoints BERTA and LAPAC

While flying between Tagucigalpa, Honduras (MHTG) and Managua, Nicaragua (MNMG) the flight path between waypoints BERTA and LAPAC crosses a line of volcanoes. One of these, Telica, erupted in May of 2015, and the lava flows are quite fresh-looking. The flight was in a C-208 on the Training Server at 9,000 ft. at local time around 1:30 PM. Total flight time between Tagucigalpa and Managua was 68 minutes.

Cool find! Also a nice origin airport, takeoff isn’t as exhilarating though. Great shots!
