Actually, overflying an unfamiliar runway is standard operating procedure for me in the missions or even in freeflight.Some mission designers might, just as an example, put an obstacle on the runway to surprise the unprepared captain.You've been warned.

He He. You deliberately overflew to get a better look? I usually overfly cuz I am too fast after shoehorning myself down thru the mountains. I wind up going around; need a tight base leg to avoid the granite cloud... :-) You usually nail the right aproach speed and altitude on your first pass? Kudos...Best regards, Donald T. :-waveFLYing? It's cool. Trillions of birds and insects can't be wrong.

Vinnie,If you land on the correct runway, at the correct airport, the Maule should be fairly visible to you. It's on the grass, on the left side of the runway that you landed on, about halfway up the runway.I just reflew this mission, and took the following screenshots on my arrival at Stahekin State:http://forums.avsim....iles/187017.jpgI overflew the runway, rather than land, to get a closer look:http://forums.avsim....iles/187018.jpgHope that helps.

"If you land on the correct runway, at the correct airport, the Maule should be fairly visible to you. It's on the grass, on the left side of the runway that you landed on, about halfway up the runway." The links in the quoted post, like Generalissimo Francisco Franco, are still dead (a Saturday Night Live in the Chevy Chase days reference, for the younger crowd.)I can't for the life of me find the Maule. I'm at the correct airport, because the mission pointer is in the middle of it, and the direct-to on the GPS says so. I landed on runway 13. Just before landing, the copilot says, "There's the Maule." There are 2 Cubs (one red, one yellow), a few vehicles, and some "porta-potties" on the left side of the runway about halfway down, but I can't find anything else. I've even taxied up and down both sides of the runway, stopping every few feet, but nothing. I really like this mission so far, but this is driving me nuts (nuttier?). What's going on, here? Can anybody help? Help!!!Jerry
