This approach over Niagara Falls has you on a "sort of" base leg for Goat Island. Take off some power at the outset, so you get a good low-level view of the bridge (but remember Goat Island's elevation of 585 feet). When the landing area is proximate, bank left and set her down as nicely as possible under the tight circumstances.
