This is at IMTOY (3.3 DME) at 1440 MSL and 870 AGL on radar altimeter. I'm one dot high on the PAPI.

This is at 1.9 DME at 960 MSL and 150 AGL on Radar Altimeter and 2 dots high on the PAPI. I flew another approach on the PAPI and was at 100 AGL.

These four pictures obviously are only an approximation, but I think they give the general idea about the approach in the day. I need to clean the scenery up a little and remove the lights immediately in front of the aircraft. Looking at Google maps I believe the lighted area is mainly trees.

I know this is just a game, but I struggle to get the aircraft down inside IMTOY knowing how close the ridgeline is at 1.9 DME. :)

I believe that you'll find that that is a simulator creation, you'd never get a real airplane that close to the end unless you towed it! Altho I did always get as close to the end as possible at that airport just to the east of Prestwick in Scotland (can't remember the name just now, that replacement after we moved over there from Prestwick). At any rate, uncomfortably short for me. With a DC-10 you can overhang the grass with the cockpit, the nosewheel is w-a-y back!

best, randy

Yup, you be correct and I also just now thought of it while I was eating, Glasgow, it had a quirk in the runway setup, the taxiway did not get you all the way to the end of the runway! I always liked that city, flew it during that first time period that I flew the 10s.

best, randy
