Me and the Chateau

Talk about RW interfering with simming - getting in to the Chateau is a bit of a Kai Tak job. Come in through the gap at about 50kts, lift the starboard wing over those three trees, and then set down between the dry grass bits, but keeping enough power on to get up the slope to the front lawn.
For the past few days I have been trying to upgrade my comp shot, but MetServe has been saying thunderstorms around Turangi, so that's what REX Sky Force has been giving me. Couldn't even see the place this arvo, the cloudbase was so low.
This pic is from the other week, when I was still figuring out the best way in.

'Propliner' is actually short for 'Proper airliner, with big rumbly radials'

This is more fun. I have also landed a Drouine Turbulent on the service road behind the Chateau :rolleyes:
