I had been wanting to use a local lighthouse (3.2 km away) as a POI mission subject.  I got the nerve to do it and have now run three missions with improving success....and a close call.

The challenge is that the coordinates of the lighthouse are not exactly known so I have been estimating and tweaking paths.  Only issue now is that the bird is returning in reverse :-) so I need to fix that.

Close call (if you want to avoid the long run over water skip ahead to 6 mins.

Better orbit on this one, but I sitll need to adjust its position further.  You can't correct it properly by leaveing the POI in the wrong place and just adjusting the track because it points at the wrong spot...the birds on this island are nuts at this hour!  Looks like Jurasic Park!
