Since I got my instrument rating I haven't filed a VFR flightplan. Today I thought I would do that and practice some good old "Pilotage" and "Dead Reckoning". I picked Shelton as a destination since I haven't been that way in a while.
Heading westbound over Auburn
New Narrows Bridge progess
You can see the ship with all the bridge deck pieces
Tacoma Narrows Airport
Nice cloud reflections
On Final for Runway 23 at Shelton
Shelton after a touch and go
Me, happier than I look in this picture
There is a little runway between these houses with an "X" on it, which means it's closed.(Hard to see)s A couple months ago I remember seeing this aerial shot on the news when a small plane took off and couldn't climb. It crashed it the mud and both guys walked out. Not sure what this private strip is or was called as it isn't on the chart.
The Purdy bridge
Just put the plane away
