Flying over THE GREAT DISMAL SWAMP, NC
FLYING over The GREAT DISMAL SWAMP!

-Wow, flying over a HUGE swamp like this at low-level is both beautiful and a little disconcerting! You can see the wildlife moving and creatures in the water down there - some of them pretty big!

-Just south of the Norfolk area and KCPK is the GREAT DISMAL SWAMP in all its' splendor! Absolutely neat to fly over and take in while in this region. This photo is just a small part of what you would see on a clear day.

-The fire that raged out of control is now totally extinguished and the views are great - give it a try!

-I flew it between 1,500 and 2,500 depending on the Wildlife Refuge Areas (marked on the sectional) and it was a great flight.

-You don't want to lose an engine here! May even consider some water floatation devices if you decide to take the full aerial tour.

-Afterwards, stop into Hampton Roads for a great lunch or supper at the Blue Skies Grill!
