A Blue Sky in the Mile High City to a Sunset in Oakland!

Denver to Oakland

Last weekend I wanted to fly the MD-11F because I rarely fly it and it’s a really fun plane to fly. I decided to fly Denver to Oakland because FedEx flies this route in real life and you may know that I love sunsets on the bay in Northern California. I know that on Monday I flew into San Francisco and now o have Oakland, so I guess I owe one to @BigBert10 and San Jose, I’ll have that soon 😉
Flight time was 1 hour 56 minutes

The answer to yesterday’s question may be surprising, Semisopochnoi Island is actually the Easternmost point in the U.S.! 21% of people got that



And I’ve been running out of routes so if you have any scenic routes please let me know them!


A short route: TNCA-TNCB :D

route; VNKT - ZBAA (most of the highest mountains can have good scenery but be around the highest altitude you can get or at your own

I just looked at FR24 and that would be a fun one to try with the KLM 777 because they use the A330 in real life!

@KindaTartySliceOfPie I rarely use it so it was a lot of fun!

@BigBert10 I think I’ll have an SJC post before that, but that’ll be a fun one to try when the flight starts!

@GameBoy_KIRB that’s a good one! I never fly in that region so it’ll be a fun change
