You are not on a landing approach to Moffett Naval Air Station. Instead, you're flying there to put on a benefit air-show for a big crowd of Californians. They've just caught sight of you, and are watching to see what you'll do.

Your first act should dazzle 'em. Glide down to a low altitude and fly through one of Moffett's three big blimp hangars--specifically, the first hangar to the right of the parallel runways.

If you have tower capability, be advised there's an observer at the other end of that hangar, ready to confirm that you touch neither the ground nor any part of the hangar.

The airshow is for the benefit of the WGOF (Wayward Girls Over Forty) Aid Society, so maybe you can take your expenses off your income tax.
