Weather and Flight Plan
While back taxiing for takeoff we witnessed an eruption on Popocatepetl and report to Tower.
The elevation at Puebla is 7361. I found that this altitude requires me to use the gear override in order to retract the gear.
To avoid restricted area MR-102, I flew an initial heading 190° to user waypoint MR102 18°21.6' -98°34.2'. For future flights I have created another waypoint MXMTN 17°12' -97°58.8' to proceed to next to avoid high terrain.
The flight took a little longer than anticipated. I had planned to follow the Río Verde to the coast but turned off early on the wrong river valley and added some distance to the trip.
