Roscoe (82J) to Dauphin Island (4R9)

4R9 is often called a ‘carrier’ landing as the 3000′ airport is surrounded on 3 side by Mobile Bay and the approach to Runway 12 is mostly over water. In this video, we depart from Pensacola, Roscoe field for a 25 minute flight at 2,500′ to Dauphin Island. Along the way, great views of Perdido Bay and Pass, Orange Beach, Gulf Shores, Fort Morgan, and Fort Gaines. Winds were light but almost direct crosswind at landing.
