N3N to LAX

August 8th, 2011 by Mark

It’s not everyday you have the chance to fly an open cockpit biplane into LAX, but I had just that opportunity last Friday. FedEx was having their annual Family Day/Open House and wanted some vintage airplanes for the event. The Flabob Express DC-3 went over Thursday afternoon and I took the N3N the following day. Despite some challenges with the radio, everyone was very patient and understanding and the flight was without incident. My appologies to the American Airlines flight that had to hold and hold and hold while I was on an extended 3 mile final! Somehow 80mph approach speeds just don’t fit into today’s world.
Quite a lot easier to leave. Maintain runway heading to the shoreline, turn North, go away!!!!!
