Wow, would you believe that not more than two minutes before this shot was taken the sun was behind some clouds. When she first came on frequency and departed the Santa Monica VOR on downwind, there was no way I would have thought the sun would have ever made an appearance. But she had a long downwind (21 miles) and consequently a long final. In total 13 minutes from passing a beam the tower to TD. Just enough time for everything to clear up. Thanks to Elizabeth for help with obtaining B-6055's schedule.
