A Busy Day in Dallas to a Sunset off the Central American Coast

Dallas to Roatan

Yesterday afternoon there was a big DFW Flyout for the 2 year anniversary of @AmericanVirtual. I’m flying to every Caribbean airport that American flies to (there are 33 of them). The only Caribbean airport that AA flies to from DFW that I haven’t flown to yet is Roatan. Roatan is an island just off the East coast of Honduras in the Caribbean Sea. There were many American aircraft there and the event was awesome to be apart of, so thanks AAVA! AA flies this route irl in the 737 so I used my favorite American livery, the TWA special livery and flight time was 2 hours and 39 minutes.

So great to have you back posting in #screenshots-and-videos! Some really nice pictures as always, with great light conditions and also cool angles (like the overhead gate ones). I also learned two new things:

  1. That we had the TWA livery in IF.
  2. That there is an island called Roatan.

Thanks for sharing and for all the information, good luck with your Caribbean mission!
