I was looking for a route to airports which I had never flown to and I decided to fly from KSJC to @Thunderbolt’s home airport KSNA. Those airports never receive any love in IF and it would be great if they could be featured on the ATC schedule someday. My friend @ZinZowe joined too.
Rotating out of KSJC with @ZinZowe in the background.
Turning south after takeoff.
We observe rocks and mountains as we head towards Orange County!
Passing LA, which gets way too much attention in IF.
Flying next to island of Catalina. The airport (KAVX), is difficult to land at because of wind shears on final approach. I highly recommend doing a short hop from California (except LAX of course) with the TBM or other GA aircraft!
Turning base over the rocky hills!
Doing a good-ish landing on the short runway at KSNA!
