The view: Procedure turn inbound at Blair, Nebraska (BTA).

The pilot: Dave Johnson

The airplane: 1960 Beech Bonanza

The mission: A little instrument practice to knock the rust off, shooting the RNAV 13 into my home base.

The memory: It was one of those smooth as glass evenings and we had already made two other approaches. I was ready to finish this last approach and call it a day when my safety pilot said, “take your foggles off. You’ve got to see this.” I came out from under the hood and was again amazed at the beauty that sometimes can only be appreciated from an airplane. God sure knows how to paint a beautiful picture. I quickly captured the moment on my cell phone then it was turn inbound on the localizer to finish another trip in my flying machine.

    Thanks for sharing this beautiful shot. I’ve lived in Omaha and now Lincoln for over 50 years and have seen many such sunsets, but they never get old.
