@juan_tavares nice ,mate hope you had a good time there

We actually didn’t stay there for long, we drove up to New York then 4 days later drove back down, spent the night, then drove down to Virginia Beach then came back up to catch our flight 3 days later, very scary approach.

Wait how did you AAPR a visual? I assume you mean you used an approach plane with V/LNAV to get you to the river then continued by hand?

Alrighty then yea personally that approach was kinda scary

The river visual is one of my favourites in IF and as a passenger in real life
