KRAL (Riverside) has crossing runways - 16/34 and 27/9
Helicopter students traditionally use the small section of inactive runway 16 to practice approaches and landings, but getting back to the school often times requires a full right overhead traffic pattern.  

This is the shortcut!  
I start by bringing the Robinson22 into a holding hover just short of the active runway 27 - then get permission from the ATC to cross the active runway (look for the shadow of the Cessna that took off over us) - then proceed to make a left turn pedal turn onto taxiway Alpha, then immediately make a right pedal turn onto taxiway Bravo - and then air taxi into our designated parking spot.
