The view: Short final for runway 02 at Olaya Herrera Airport (SKMD), Medellín, Colombia

The pilot: Claudia Garces

The airplane: Beechcraft King Air C90GTx

The mission: Coming home after completing 10,000 flight hours in my pilot career.

The memory: Our airport is 4,950 ft above sea level, in the middle of the city surrounded by mountains. Every landing is an exercise of concentration and precision, and that’s exactly what makes it special. Love it.

  • Hi Claudia and Santiago, what an excellent photo, and some fun flying. I remember some fun, memorable, and exciting times during my 50+ years of flying in the US Air Force, Mass. Air National Guard, and owning and flying in our Cessna 182 airplane. In fact, I recall flying into Dean Memorial Airport (5B9) in North Haverhill, New Hampshire where we lived and ‘based’ our airplane. The 36/01 paved runway 2500 ft. long… nestled in ‘White Mountains’ of northern New Hampshire. At times, it was VERY challenging and exciting landing there…. sometimes more than ANY of the flying I did in the B-47, and F86H I flew in the Air Force and Mass. ANG. I wish I could read Spanish, so I could understand the previous Comment. Finally, Claudia & Santiago, do keep up your flying, photo taking; and I would like to have a ~5 minute telephone conversation with you about your flying, etc. at (206) 382- 3643… or better yet provide me with your telephone number, and I will telephone you. Cheers, Joel Godston
