Around the world in Cessna 182

December 13, 2003
New Orleans, Louisiana (KMSY) to Knoxville, Tennessee (KTYS)

It was dark and stormy day in New Orleans. No, really it was. I tried to request VFR clearance for a flight to Knoxsville, and was told that the airport was IFR only. So, I created and filed an IFR plan, to fly from New Orleans, to Jackson, MS (flyover only), and to then to Knoxsville.

I was wandering how long will my luck with the good (flying) weather last, and today I found out. During the whole flight, I was going along the front that was bringing thunderstorms to New Orleans and Jackson, and sleet and snow to Knoxville. I still got to make few screen shots on the way though. The good thing is that by the time I got to Knoxville, the weather has cleared up, and the snow has stopped.

ATC approach, and ILS landing were without any problems.
