A 0.5 hour flight from Puerto Natales to Punta Arenas (Carlos Ibáñez Military Air Base). We attempted to do a second flight today, down and around Cape Horn, but after two hours getting permission and paperwork straightened out, the weather predictions were calling for icing conditions.

An impressive rate of descent.

Landing Punta Arenas. I think the other traffic out there is Behn.

The field at Punta Arenas; N850WM, N137CT, N850SJ, N82XL. This was after our aborted attempt to fly around Cape Horn. Behn had already left when we checked the weather one last time, and scrubbed. So, he got to park with us!
