Gliding in the Swiss Alps

Ok, this photo is a little interesing... note the propeller feathered outside the windscreen, several of the screens black, and we are gliding at 125 knots while passing 10,000 feet. Every PC12 goes through a shutdown and relight on its first flight, so we can now say that FVE has had TWO in-flight shutdowns.

A very simple and interesting excercise really, but your brain is constantly trying to remind you that the unnatural quiet and lack of vibration is perhaps not what you should be enjoying right now, and get back to the business of relighting.
