LightHawk Flight, Sep 30, 2018, for the Rensselaer Plateau Alliance
Here is the mission segment of the Sunday flight (only the mission segment):
I first flew a relocation flight to Hudson/Columbia to put both cameras under my wings to "refly" the last three (Southernmost) waypoints.
This is the full flight, after the last three waypoints I headed off to Lancaster, PA. After the last mission waypoint I flew all the way to Lancaster just using my autopilot tracking VORs (IGN, HUO, ETX). I picked that route because it brought me over Highpoint (Point Jervis), the Delaware River, along the Kittatinny Ridge, along the Appalachian Trail, Delaware Water Gap, then further along the Kittatinny Ridge, then passing by Allentown, directly over Reading (crossing the Schuylkill River), and then Lancaster.
In case you are interested in the whole flight in timelapse, from take-off in Hudson/Columbia to Lancaster, PA, along the above route, here it is:
