River Approach Toward PAVD Runway 06 Can Be Beautiful and Fun
« on: August 09, 2019, 09:38:41 am »
Shalom and greetings all my pals,

Exciting river approach toward runway 06 of PAVD Valdez Airport  three nautical miles east of the business district of Valdez, Alaska can be pure beautiful and fun as you get to fly 3,000 ft above river THROUGH between mountains on way to runway 06!!

Descending to 3,000 above waters of Valdez Narrows river



Navigating above river through between mountains can be beautiful and EXCITING



On final runway approach above waters of Port Valdez toward runway 06







DARN THE STRONG ALASKAN WINDS making me land right wheel first before left wheel



Left wheel gliding down to make runway contact



Front wheels on ground to complete the touchdown!!



Exiting from runway toward gate



Arriving at passenger apron



To understand and see how DC-7 land on right wheel first before left wheel like I did in that flight, look at the other DC-7's landing:
