Cor, Arden Hills, I know it well. Just south of the junction with I694.

There's a good model shop just south of there, or there was anyway.

Great landing, and at night too!  :thumbsup:
Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings, and/or a longer fuselage

...and I'm not a closeted 'Take That' fan, I'm a REAL fan! :)

Regards

When I first read the subject line my first thought was “that’s impossible Viking is billions of miles away!”.
At least the pilot missed all the highway light poles!
There's someone in my head, but it's not me!

Well, that's appropriate, dontcha know?

actually is than they ever are about
