Trip on Wednesday 3/26/06


Here is the overall track.  The total trip distance was 116 nm

The approach to and departure from OXR is below.  Note on the departure, after Mugu gave us a 075 heading toward VNY that  the strong northwest wind "blew" us south of OXR.  Then we established a crab angle to track to VNY.

Here is our approach to SMO

And finally our arrival at SMO and taxi to parking.  The parking spot is labeled 014.  Also shown is our taxi to the run-up area and our takeoff/departure.  I veered to the left for the noise abatement procedure but then the Tower instructed us to proceed directly to the Santa Monica Pier, probably because a jet was taking off behind us.

That's All Folks
