That's it! The end of South America! OK, granted, the scale here is huge...

Still windy, and we seem to have run out of nice land. Big bumps on the left, and water on the right.

Still windy, but slightly less. 114 kt wind, 60 on the nose, 96 to the side. But we're turning!

Post turn, winds are now much better! Still 108 kt wind, but 8 on the tail, and 108 to the side.

Terrain into Puerto Natales. Red is bad, like you die bad. Yellow is almost bad.

Blurry, but a closer view of the terrain. 30nm scale.

Final at Puerto Natales! Windy! Bumpy! Note the nasty dark clouds. John wasn't so lucky with the storm.

It wasn't raining, but still reasonably nasty out, windy, not warm. TBM's N850SJ and N850WM in Puerto Natales. How windy? Look at the prop on N850SJ - it's trying to turn, but being held back by the exhaust cover (the red things on the prop are connected to the red things on the exhaust above the teeth).
