Final Approach, Runway 18 Polson (8S1)

I took my friend Marcys flying a couple years back. Here is the video she shot of me landing Runway 18 in Polson, Montana. I love this sunset approach since it is over Flathead Lake, and there’s a bar and a road to cross just before the runway threshold. I’ve never flown this approach according to the VASI (4 lights on the left side of the runway), since it puts me ridiculously low next to the two-story bar on the right. (In the still frame below, you can see four white lights to the left of the runway which means I’m too high. On the lower right you can see the lights of the two-story bar and grill!) Fun!!
