X Plane 10 : Carenado King Air B200 Southampton to Le Touquet

This is a flight I have had planned for a while. I would have done it much sooner had it not been for issues with the X-Plane 11 beta.

The weather is real time, and clouds are generated by xEnviro. That presents a second issue, because the conditions approaching Le Touquet are frequently poor, as was the case for this flight.

As much as I did prepare for this flight, I could have prepared better. In particular it's vital to check weather conditions at takeoff and approach. If conditions are poor on approach then you must either accept and be prepared for a full IFR approach, choose another destination, or simply not use xEnviro.

Because I didn't plan the journey as thoroughly as I should I had to improvise on approach.
