Bridge Hunting at Oslo

Fly the 15nm south from Gardermoen in a simple flight plan which takes you around the capital, Oslo.
These recon images were captured at 10:45 a.m. The sun is very close to the southern horizon at this latitude, but at least the glare is absent as we pass Oslo on the second and third legs of the flight.
There is a plethora of bridges in this region, so you'll see that those at WP 1 and WP3 have several VERY close neighbours. Pick any bridge as your turn point.
I added two waypoints to the plan flown in the RECON videos. However they lay on a straight line between WP 1 and WP 3 (Intility Stadium) and between WP 3 and WP 5 (Ullevall Stadium). So the earlier RECON videos are still valid references.
With the Nordic sim updates to the default scenery you'll see a lot more churches and distinctive architecture than in those videos.
