Need to go back to Lake Charles to have lunch with my wife so we skipped touring the city. Moody Gardens below at take off.
Passed by two cruise ships.
Looks like we are having some bad stuff in front of us, but easily avoided.
What are these in the water?
There are a lot of petrochemical plants along the coastal area.
On the ILS 15 approach back to Lake Charles we were given vector to avoid some rain. Of course we were in VFR and was doing practice approach.
A Cessna and a helicopter were ahead of us doing the same thing. Another airplane was doing GPS approach practice on a different runway.
About to capture localizer and got a good view of lake front casinos and the port.
Again, David did a great job. By the time we reached DA the runway was right in front. He put the airplane back to the runway gently. We had a great morning of flying.
Forgot to mention that on the way back David saw a drone flew below and by us. I did not see it and it was not on my ADS-B display. We were told by a Lake Charles lineman that government flies a lot of drones to check on traffic along the coast.
