How to: Toncontin (how to approach)

Hi all

Welcome to a tutorial on how to land at Toncontin (02 specifically), and some other approaches. Here, you can see how to land at Toncontin using approach 1, 2 or 3 (you might get ghosted using 2 or 3). Without anymore chit-chat, let’s get in!

Approach 1:

Approach 2:

Approach 3:
