Shelter Cove Scenery and Landing

This pilot does a nice job of checking out the airport and surrounding area before landing.  Nice views of Shelter Cove and the southern part of the King Range.  In another video the pilot calls a 10-mile final coming in from the south.  I have posted a video showing deer on this runway and farm equipment on the approach.  I personally like to take a look before I land.  Too many years of Baja and remote field flying, I guess.  I've seen all kinds of things on runways from kids, dune buggies, cows, high tide, and in a favorite Baja location, a huge concrete block mid-field. 


Dinsmore Airport Flyover and Takeoff

Dinsmore is considered by most pilots to be a one-way airport and not suitable for a lot of airplanes because of the narrow twisting valley, the tall trees, the altitude, and the relatively short runway.  The following video was posted on YouTube by people who give information and show approaches, landings, and takeoffs at western airports.  They didn't even attempt Dinsmore.


Here is a low quality video of a takeoff from Dinsmore.
