A follow up to last week's video where I complete the ILS 29R into Modesto. Some mistakes were made, but I learned some things.
I do some IFR approaches today with some low cloud cover and fog.
The cameras didn't last for all 4, but I captured the first 2. Here is a VOR-A into Oakdale (O27). The airport went VMC while I was on my way there.

So I've always wanted to be a pilot as long as I can remember, when I was a kid, I would say I want to be a pilot when I grow up. I enlisted in the USAF with the intention of working airplanes, but I got a computer job instead. In 1993 I took my first flight in a Cessna 172, it was supposed to be a sight seeing flight with my girlfriend. I had every intention of starting training but it didn't work out. Whenever a friend or colleague mentioned they were a pilot, they would recommend having all the required money up front before beginning training so as to not delay the training, since I couldn't come up with all the money at once, I never started.
