This is a very interesting flight. So a little background info, the United States Military uses a canyon in the mountains of Southern California for fighter pilot training. The canyons official name is Rainbow canyon but it’s commonly nicknamed Star Wars Canyon. I have flown down it a lot before this one to get some prior experience with it before having an infinite flight showdown, so let’s hope these look cool!
The photos are ready!
Taking off from Nellis AFB
Climbing over Las Vegas. Hi @IanD, controlling a very quiet KLAS
Descending back down to find the canyon
Made it to the canyon
Adjusting the daylight so you can see better
After 5 runs, climbing back up and returning to Nellis AFB
Safe landing back in Nellis AFB
I hope y’all enjoyed!
