Note first the almost 200 knot speed. This is ground speed and due to a 40 knot tailwind. As I neared Norwood, there was an Eclipse jet in the pattern and another Cirrus on approach. It seems that the other Cirrus had trouble finding the runway – I can sympathize with this as Norwood is a difficult airport to spot from the air. Tower asked if I could do a short approach – having practiced circle to land many times, I said yes but abandoned the Perspective Plus guidance and was totally visual.
