The unique private pilot perspective: too much water?
Updated: Oct 8, 2018
My wife, Margreet, and I had the privilege to fly one of our Piper Archers over a drenched Sacramento valley. We flew from Lincoln to Willows, had lunch at Nancie’s diner, and flew back over the Oroville dam. The Oroville dam area has a Temporary Flight Restriction (TFR), and we didn’t want to disturb any repair acitivity, but the TFR has a top of 4,500 ft, so we were able to take pics from 5,500 ft with the old Canon with the still current and almost perfect EF 70-200 4.0L IS. You can see the spectacle as we experienced it from our unique vantage point.
