    Entering into IMC...

    Here is the next bi-weekly question from Radek!

    We all remember being taught to exit IMC to VMC by a 180degree turn back... but is that the best option? Do you think it would be saferto do something else?

    Two guys flew a C-150 into a cloud. Recognizing their predicament, one blurted out: "Lets do a 360 and get the heck out of here!"

    They have never been seen or heard from since.
