Great shots and I think it’s spelled caribou.

Hi @juan_tavares.
You are right for referring to the animal. But according to the maps I have seen, this mountain range is named Cariboo. The area there apparently has lots of caribou, I don’t know why the spelling is different.

You’re literally one of the very very very few people who flew the P-38 and made a post about it. Congrats to you for being able to fly it!

Ah, here’s a rare one. I’ve rarely seen someone fly the P-38, let alone see a post with images about it.

Some nice images, you have. :)

Thanks, @Philippe_Gilbert, @Astreal and @Butter_Boi. Obviously not having auto pilot on the P-38 means the pilot has to be active for the whole flight. My funny secret is that during my first 9 months in IF, I didn’t know what AP meant, and so I flew all my flights by hand. Once I realized about AP I thought “Boy, that makes things easier!” LOL.
