Airport: KNKX to KTOA
Aircraft: anything that can keep up with an F-14 at cruise
The Cobras have been flying in and out of KNKX(Miramar MCAS) for as long as I can remember. But it has its problems. The taxi time can be a bit much for scrambling, and it seems a bit out of the loop in SoCal. So we decided to move to the quaint KTOA. It serves our needs with one 5000 foot runway for main ops and one 3000 foot runway for training flights. The field is named after Louis Zamperini, the B-24 navigator who’s story is told in the book and movie, Unbroken. Feel free to tag along with our guys as we fly from KNKX to KTOA. We expect to take off, fly a few patterns around Miramar to say goodbye, and then fly over to Zamp field. Once at KTOA, the non cobras members can land and taxi to the parking area, while the Cobras flight will do a low pass to break in the new field. As allows, leave a comment if you are coming, or PM me to join the Cobras.
