Suggested tours

The old airport

The airport of Vaeroy was closed in 1992 because of a serious accident 2 years before.(-> https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wider%C3%B8e_Flight_839) It is very dangerous and difficult to fly there because of the strong west-winds. In FlightGear, start at Leknes or Rost airport with a DHC-6 or similar and fly to this airport. Set weather to live data or "Stormy Monday"!
