    Wow, love it.
    You did what I was dreaming about. I know where this place is, when I passed by, I thought about to flying there but did not dare. I like how close you went.
    Is Marilyn Monroe still there? Because if so, you could make a video there. I did fly there but I regret till this day that I did not fly under her skirt :)

    That was gutsy...having been to PS a couple of times it brought back memories of those wind farms around PS. Don't think I would have the nerve to do that though. Thanks for sharing...

    Thanks guys, yeah it was a bit risky. I could have gotten into trouble with wind drift or if I got disoriented. Well I've done it now so I don't think I'll be flying through the blades again anytime soon. Usually when I go through that area it's too windy and unpredictably gusty. Sunday was about perfect for a quick flight though :cool:
