I found a good spot in Nago Okinawa for landing and take off, it is main street I geuss. Maybe I should have posted this on mission builders, but anyway here it is. I thought I'd put it as a looky-what-I-done.

Not too bad! But you did break the 'Golden Rule'. If your engine dies on takeoff NEVER turn back to the airstrip.
You should have landed for a saki at the village inn on the otherside of the ridge.

Dude when my engine guit I requested a vector to the nearest saki bar, it's not my fault the knuckle head radar operator pointed me back to Nago International.

Actually, if you like urban runways, Caen, France has much more to offer. Great shopping, restaurants, the traffic is ALWAYS light, just that occasional annoying train wait.
