Some cool unedited shots of my C172 flight around Taupo Airport in New Zealand. Around 6.20am local time on the casual server. It’s my first go at capturing some shots so go easy on me… lol

If I ever see a pilot go around for any reason I give them a virtual high five. It shows us that the pilot used his judgement and made the safe decision.

That glide slope is high for commercial aircraft, but if you do it right, it works for a 172. Unfortunately, the 172 physics aren’t accurate (yet!) so he might not have made it.


Great photos, Darren!
