Volcanoes of Central Mexico Tour

On my way south touring the Americas I noticed a series of impressive volcanoes just south of Mexico City. This little loop on the Training Server in a TBM-930 takes a closer look at these volcanoes. Cruising altitude was 13000 ft and flight time was 70 min. Local time was around 1 PM.
