AirLeg 115

1) Descend to “1500” feet

2) Track outbound until RIGHT downwind abeam the midpoint of HAWTHORNE airport

“Oh boy! There's an airport! You've been flying for quite a while, trying to figure out these daggone pioneer questions, and the end could just be in sight! You could buy an expensive Caffeine Free Diet Coke and have a grilled cheese sandwich to appease that roaring appetite which you 've built up! Now you know how Charles Lindbergh felt when he landed in Paris - except I doubt if they had grilled cheese! They probably had oysters a la creme with Boones' Farm Sauvignon premium wine, or something!”
