Flight from Las Vegas to Death Valley
And here's the return flight from Vegas (KLAS) to Death Valley (L06). We filed HIDEN BTY and a cruise alt of 16000ft.
Holding short RW 19R in Vegas:
Climbing out runway heading. First we got a vector to the south to clear the mountains west of Vegas:
Then we got a vector to 240 degrees:
Next we were cleared to intercept the LAS 251 radial and then direct HIDEN and thence own nav:
Shortly before intercepting the LAS 251 radial.:
Too much looking out of the window, we overshot the radial but corrected that before it got an issue:
Long before BTY we got a vector to Furnace Creek. Telescope Peak and Death Valley come into view:
We were cleared down to 9200ft. I read back 9000ft and the controller immediately noticed.:
Furnace Creek at 12 o'clock:
We overflew the field and circled down to a left downwind for RW33:
Entering 45° left downwind. The airfield is at -210ft and pattern altitude is 790ft:
One the ramp. The evening light was very beautiful:
In fact, it was so beautiful that I took my King Air up for another spin.
Last light on the ramp:
Thanks for looking!
