A Blue Sky in the City of Angels to a Sunset in the Mountains of the Pacific Northwest

Last Saturday, I flew to one of my newly favorited airports. Portland. I flew LAX-PDX in the US Airways E175 for @AmericanVirtual. I took off in the mid to late afternoon in Los Angeles and flew north over San Francisco, Redding and up into Portland. I use my IPhone 6s for a lot of flights, but for this flight I used my IPhone11, the difference between all high graphics and all low graphics is amazing and using my IPhone 11 with high graphics is definitely more fun. I landed just after sunset in Portland but the sun shining off the mountains of Oregon was awesome to say the least. I actually really like the E-Jets, they’re easy to fly and the cockpit reminds me of a mini A220. Flight time was 1 hour 48 minutes

Probably my favourite picture of this post (selection tough as always)! The E-Jets can look really amazing!

Thanks for sharing!

Also the landing lights edit is very well done on the sunset/night pictures!

Thank you guys @Zach_inkling and @Patoo!

Thanks 😊! I like the EJets but I still think they need a rework, and tell me they don’t kind of look like an A220 😂

They certainly do and have earned it!

Not from every angle, that’s what I can say (loving both aircraft), but there are some similarities, that’s true😉
