Target date January 23rd, Monday evening 7pm EST

Hello !

In memory of the doomed Eastern Flight 980 that crashed into Mount Illimani back in 1985 ...

We will fly a shorter version of the flight.  It will be from SLVR  to SLLP.  I will have Pizza set up daylight hours for the flight, calm weather.

Here is the flight plan from my OneDrive Link: https://1drv.ms/u/s!AkEjxsTqEEBSxEfdF5AkZabKfQVr

I will be using the following speeds and altitudes:
ILSwaypnt=FI10      Speed=175 Altitude=15500
Cruising Altitude                                       =31900
Dest Airport Altitude                                =13330
Cruising Speed                  =303
Waypoint1=TERAX Speed=301 Altitude=20200
Waypoint2=milli     Speed=289 Altitude=20000
Waypoint3=ILS01   Speed=279 Altitude=18500
Waypoint4=ILS02   Speed=200 Altitude=17000
I have included a couple of links that provide some history...
