After a quick break I decided to try the track once more before it gets too dark
Another careless takeoff by me... the other plane had already landed but wasn't quite clear yet
Off to start another attempt...
...which turned out to be my best one yet, and the one you can view a video of (I took 55 seconds to complete the course, but penalties would bump that to at least 1:27, even by a loose interpretation of the rules)
Turning around to try again...
...but this time around I crashed again (and it was starting to get too dark for any more attempts)
In case any other pilots needed rescuing, I decided to stick around in this Sea King rescue helicopter
Lifting off to observe the situation from the air
Daihard approaching the runway in an Avroliner
Decided to try the course in the Sea King, to see if I could beat my previous record!
Starting the run
Hah, no chance! My time in the helicopter was around 3:30, _not_ counting penalties!
