Landing on 04

If your in a low wing and trying to land on 04, then you need to hit the threshold, or you sink rate = the slop of the runway!!!

Try not to stamp on the breaks too!

Nice place but expensive

Stayed overnight at Forrest with my Daughterand re-fuled. Great for a stopover or break. Airport manager and his wife were terrific, and the dinner was great, but it was the most expensive leg of my whole trip round Oz :(
