17APR21 / 1900Z - Flash Flight: Retro Skies in the South @ FAOR


Welcome to the first Flash Flight of this weekend, and of our 10th-anniversary celebrations! We’ll be hitting the skies of South Africa in the Infinite Flight Retro MD-11, a unique and fun aircraft to fly. We introduced this livery with the addition of the MD/DC 10/11 aircraft into the simulator, and it has gone on to be one of the most popular Infinite Flight liveries we have.

For today’s flight, we will fly from Johannesburg to Cape Town, two cities with an active and busy air connection. You don’t need to fly the retro MD-11, and you can take part with any aircraft you want, however, we suggest taking part in the theme of the event!


These events can lead to amazing photos, and the best shots from this event will be retweeted on Twitter and posted on Instagram!. Simply tag us using @infiniteflight, or use the hashtag #infiniteflight. We look forward to seeing all your amazing photos!

I would be able to make it, but considering hundreds will be there, I am expecting at least an hour delay, so i won’t be there. Have fun everyone and glad to see the MD11 getting some love!

FACT has a limited amount of gates and based on the amount of planes at FACT does anyone know what will happen at FACT if all the gates are in use?
