KLAX Visibility

Probably the worst I have ever seen in this game. Pretty fun taking off using only instruments. I couldn’t see any other aircraft on the ground unless I was within ~100feet of them. This thread doesn’t really have any meaning, other than if you want to experience poor visibility and doing an instrument only taxi/take off go check it out. It was a first for me on Live

Thanks for the heads up!

I’m checking how cloudy it is outside and it’s dark out so the visibility will be low.

I had that happen the other day coming into LFOE. Vis was .25 sm. It was a pretty cool experience.

Yes, even KSAN visibility too~

Anyway I just landed nicely in KSAN, KNUC and KLAX.

First time I ever saw this in IF

I had to go-around

No doubt, fog and .5 sm vis, that’ll do it.

Wow, had similar weather at Catalina before.

Wow, why is it red?

I believe red equals IFR only.

Oh ok, i see.

That was the first time I have ever seen the SOCAL region red due to weather/visibility. I found it pretty cool. I really enjoyed doing a IFR only landing.

I’ve occasionally had around .25 visibility. It is extremely fun to try to navigate on the ground, and in the air during these conditions.

Always wondered why SoCal visibility is always so bad, usually around 10 nm. 😕

It was 04.km 6 hours ago on socal, or atleast somewhere around 6 hours ago

I was controlling KLAX earlier today, with 1/16SM. That was funny. I had literally no ground awareness, but it was funny for sure!
