XC Bohl - Flight Reports

Post by Nate »

I'll do write ups later. First, my best flight, yesterday. We started with goal Palacios but after I talked to Rich (he landed), I told him I was going downwind to the other goal discussed, Port Lavaca airport. Down to 800ft at one point, then up to 6200. At that point, I talked to Rich again and knew I would wait a while for retrieve as they were headed back to the field first. Instead of being short behind the Inteplast plant or huge Formosa plant on the east side of Lavaca Bay, I glided towards the beer store on Caranchua Point at the north end of Caranchua Bay on 35. Close to there, I hit solid lift over 20-30 kettling hawks and decided to play the original task. Not getting the altitude I felt I needed for the water crossing of Lavaca Bay, I carfully tip toed around the north of the bay, punting in on a final glide of 5 miles from just under 2000ft.

Great time, great flying. Challenging.

The quick on Saturday. Note how low I got on the west side of the runway. Also note I never crossed or went over the runway below 1000ft. 8-)
