Re: Rift_Valley_Part_2...

Fascinating stuff :) Sounds like no better way to get an impression of the area than get down into it 'life size'.

And the great thing is being able to recreate the scene albeit in virtual form :rock:

Landing on cars and aerobatics in sailplanes does sound like the kind of tomfoolery that would occur at Mcleland field... :lol:

Diverting

Quick one: Is there much difference (if any) these days with diverting compared to a few years ago? Apart from a situation like Peter mentioned (Standing water at Edinburgh) - presumably authority rests with the Captain - but what sort of leeway was / is involved?
