Flying from Mexicali to Mulege, Mexico (MMML to GLL)

Charlie, Marji, John and I flew to Baja California to see the grey whales last weekend. Our pilot was Charlie Jackson, Sun Labs’ Webmaster. Our  Cessna 182 Skylane II was one of four private planes on the trip from the Shoreline Flying Club.

Below are pictures of our second Air Charlie flight, from Mexicali to Mulege, Mexico, on 15 February. Mulege is pronounced MOO-leh-hey. At the flight briefing the pilots (and interested passengers) attended several days before we left, the following
overview directions were given: fly south from Mexicali (MMML), keep the land
on your right and the Sea of Cortez on your left, set down at the first green spot, that will be Mulege (GLL).

Charlie landed just before sunset. We were immediately greeted by friendly dogs and kids running around on the runway. After unloading and tying down the four planes, we took cabs into town and had dinner at Las Casitas Hotel.
