This one was taken at Tracy, Ca during one of our practices. We had almost 20 kts cross wind, hence the aircraft infront of me crabing. I was #6. Picture by Mark Loper.

Reminds one of Cedar Key, but it's too long. Approach is similar, though.

No grass. It was late fall and the grass had turned brown.

Here is a hint, I was landing over the polls the neighbor put up in a failed attempt to keep people from landing there.

A little further east is Lillehammer (15 min flight time)







Another frozen lake further north, Femunden, by the small town R?ros, which is about 20 mins flight time south of Trondheim...

Pictures 1 and 3 are the same island airport, Ocracoke, NC. It has been significantly improved since last time I landed there, there was only a widened area at the east end of the runway, and a telephone booth. The rest facilities consisted of low scrub bushes. For you young guys, a telephone booth is a wood and glass, later aluminum and glass, free standing closet with a wired telephone inside. You had to drop a nickel in the slot to make a call, which later went to a dime, then a quarter.
