The moment: Mountain wave cloud formation
The pilot: anonymous
The place: Near North Las Vegas Airport (KVGT), Las Vegas, NV
The aircraft: Cessna Citation 550
The memory: Mountain waves are common in this area in the winter months. I’m familiar enough with the area to know when and what to expect. Not something you ever want to be near as a pilot, but from this vantage point, made for a gorgeous photo.
