Departing Las Vegas for Michigan

Here’s another video for you, this was 2019 as I headed for a summer visit to Michigan. The aircraft departed west and then rolled right to come around for a northeasterly heading. The Las Vegas Strip looks nice down there doesn’t it? You also get an idea of the size of Las Vegas too.

The valley is roughly 20×30 miles in diameter. The mountains on the west side of the valley are much larger than those on the east, north, or south and are a part of the Spring Mountains range. The highest point in that range is Mount Charleston at an altitude of just under 12,000 feet.

  1. The video makes me very nostalgic for the days of flying and all of our trips to Vegas. What an excellent view of the strip.

  2. Breathtaking video, John! I felt that I was on this aircraft having a little adventure.

    • Thanks Rudi, the pandemic shut this city down which is hard to believe considering it’s world famous status. Things are slowly returning to something like normal. Some small businesses I used have shut down for good, sad. But things are getting better!
