Cheers Guys. This was my second time at flying Leg 4 because P3D decided to crash as I was on approach for ENFA. Today it went better but not time-wise I fear.

Looked like brutal weather Brian. Really liked your real world look at the waypoints, at least one wonders if the planner is attracted to power...

Good one Tim. As we have done lighthouses in the past on MEBAR, Andrew gave the strapline of 'Feel the Power' to this years event.

Oh, good lord!  I'm embarrassed to say that I've only just figured out what "Feel the Power" means.  :huh:

And I'm an electrical engineer for crying out loud!

 

Great set of pics there Brian!  As I was looking at them I was thinking, "Hmm, there sure are a lot of hydro-electric sites here.  Huh, what's with all the power stations?"  DOH!

No worries Mike, having done a couple of previous MEBARs I knew that the subtitle meant something. A previous one was 'See the Light', in that one we were looking for lighthouses. It's good fun but this years event proved pretty fruitless in terms of actual 3D models of power stations so I went looking for the images on line instead. 

Watch out in future for Andrews sub title or strapline it always has a hidden meaning of some description.

Cheers

Brian
