One of my favourite FS9 planes, which I still fly regularly in P3D

But rarely that close to the ground Laughing Laughing

Great plane !!
I had a friend who flew the Howard often from the very north of Canada to Toronto and New York. It was owned by a mining company and the Howard was used to fly out assay samples for evaluation. He told me of often flying a dogleg pattern out of their base in the arctic using only a stopwatch and a compass when the vis was next to zero. He loved that AC. he later became a Capt for CPA before he retired and went to the great 'Hanger up above'.
Thanks for bringing back those memories guys, Smile
