Hey there folks been a few weeks since I’ve flown so I decided to head out to the mountains of Montana to knock some rust off.
This flight posed a couple challenges, one was a 23 knot crosswind on departure from Thompson Falls which became a 37 knot wind upon landing at an elevation of 4800 ft.
In contention for challenging features, the runway at Foster Ranches airport in Livingston MT boast a sub-ground level approach. Approaching runway 7 can be fun as on final you will be dropping about 4000ft in a short amount of time as you coming over the last mountain on your flight.
