las vegas strip at night

The view: The Las Vegas Strip, as seen inbound to the LAS VORTAC on the Northtown 5 departure out of the North Las Vegas Airport (KVGT).

The pilot: David Tyler, Glendale, AZ

The airplane: Cessna Turbo 210

The mission: Dinner with a good friend stationed at Nellis AFB and his family.

The memory: This trip was my first flight into North Las Vegas (KVGT), and it was busy even after the tower had closed.  I was very focused on minding the traffic and  flying the departure procedure, so I hadn’t given any thought at all to where the procedure would take us relative to the city.  Luckily, I happened to sneak a look out the window.  I grabbed my phone and took this shot.  Seconds later, Las Vegas departure cleared us direct all the way home.
