    Yep, there is nothing like flying an ILS instrument approach down to 250 feet above the ground using the flight controls to keep the two needles centered (up-down, right-left) with nothing to be seen through the windshield, wholly dependent on the instruments and your own skill to keep you from making an airplane shaped hole in the ground. You're "playing for keeps" (an old marble playing expression) your life actually is riding on doing it correctly. It is an exhilarating feeling to see those runway end identifier lights flashing barely half a mile in front of you when you finally break out of the clouds

    And, sitting facing backwards in the dark, I thought those guys in the front were enjoying themselves.  Good job I was monitoring them on the H2S and the rad-alt. D
