Nice video. Look to be cruising at around 10K or 12K ASL there, though. Much more interesting down at 6K. I went through the Blaeberry pass back in about '94, at 6500 or so, just above the floor of the pass. Sure wouldn't want to go down in there. BC and Alberta have talked for years about running a highway through it, which would be a maintenance nightmare year-round, with snow and rocks and ice tumbling down most of the time.And people wonder why I still think a BRS is a good idea cutting across regularly.
But it's pretty scenery.
BRS is a good idea for around here.And people wonder why I still think a BRS is a good idea
lol some of those Midwestern crops will leave you wishing you landed in a western forestSomehow flying over that kind of terrain would freak me out. I wouldn't be able to enjoy it, when any engine problem has a better than average chance of wrecking your airplane and your flimsy body. I remember the first time I flew over the Midwest, how relaxing it was: any engine failure and you could practically trim it, fold your arms and let the thing land itself anywhere and you'd probably walk away from it.
From those pictures it looks very gnarly. I'd try paragliding instead.
A friend landed his RV-4 one evening on US 1 just south of Raleigh, NC. No damage. He was told that he had to disassemble it and remove it. He trailered it away in the early am without authorization, and was ticketed.
