    Sweet - best part of being a pilot...

    Was the siren over Watts really necessary?

    It was cool when the plane turned from the dark looking countryside to the bright city lights. Kinda reminded me of some film noir movie when they are on the road out overlooking the city and it`s just bright lights down in the valley.

    Lost one star for sh*tty song.

    @CrazyCatz135- If you`re gonna visit the West Coast, skip LA. San Francisco has cleaner air, is far more beautiful, and has much more to offer tourists. LA is smog and crime, and it`s ugly as hell.

    sbeelz- LA isn`t really that smoggy. It`s down in Cajon and around the 60 that its really smoggy. LA is too close to the ocean and gets enough wind that it doesn`t really build up. I thought this was really cool. Someone should compile NY, Denver, London, De Gaul, Da Vinci, etc all into one vid. At night.
    But I agree with LA not being all that amazing, Disneyland is worth it though.

    LA is fugly as hell. It`s all suburban sprawl, there`s no city-like characteristics. And it`s expensive as tits.

    That was drating amazing. The song was perfect.

    I love flying. I love seeing the cities at night because they look alive. The roads are the veins and the cars flow through them. It`s gorgeous.

    What`s weird is most of the approach is right above the city, whereas they have a lot of space above the ocean. I guess it`s better to crash downtown, hospitals would be closer...

    And btw, you wouldn`t get the same view from a lot of cities, coz often approach patterns don`t make you fly above the city itself.

    Marco51, flying over open (ocean) spaces is reserved for take-offs. You wouldn`t want a fully- fueled plane crashing on people, would you? Better one that`s almost out of fuel.

    @Komarov: "I don`t think I ever want to try anything bigger than the single-engines I have experience on..."

    It`s not the size of the plane, it`s the annoying Class B airspace. But I agree, small is fun. I cried the day I sold my Pitts Special.
