Approaching runway 19 at Portales Municpal Airport. Can anyone pick out the runway surface?
If you think the runway is the brown section then you'd be sorry! That's the ditch in the middle of the infield!
Look carefully to the right of the ditch. If you can spot the wheel tracks running down the snow, that is the runway centerline where I took off!
Marked the runway. I did a low pass down the runway before landing to confirm condition. Landing on packed snow isn't difficult.
