Iraq

Mosul and Duhok Dams

The first two legs to the Mosul Dam make a nice 50nm flight.

Either fly in a straight line to WP 1, or you can take a leisurely flight along the Tigris River in the shade of the palms.
If you have the time or the available speed, carry on to a second dam at Duhok and return through the lush valleys found in this part of northern Iraq.
Following the road after WP 3 will take you slightly S of the track and set you up nicely to fly through the gap in the range to Duhok Dam.
