Netherlands

Puppet on a String

Fly around Amsterdam, taking in the North Sea canal.
"The North Sea Canal is a Dutch ship canal from Amsterdam to the North Sea at IJmuiden, constructed between 1865 and 1876 to enable seafaring vessels to reach the port of Amsterdam." - Wikipedia
The terrain here is very flat and the turnpoints are easy to spot so this flight works well at 500ft altitude.
