A Busy Day in Michigan to the Summer Blue SoCal Sky

Detroit to Orange County

It’s Friday! Which I can’t believe how fast these weeks are going. It feels like it was March 3 weeks ago, but anyway since it’s Friday I have my weekly 757 post! I’m going to try not to go in my whole spiel here about why the 757 needs to be reworked and blah, blah, blah, so you can vote for the 757 Rework HERE, and if you want to be Rick Rolled, click HERE. I didn’t have any ideas for the 757 route this week until yesterday when Detroit was featured and I looked for some good Delta routes. I didn’t want to do anything generic like Detroit to Seattle, San Francisco or Los Angeles, so I decided to fly into SNA, John Wayne Orange County airport. Delta flies the 757 because of its high power and short runway capability, as the runway in SNA is only 5,700 feet long. SNA has a beautiful approach, it’s just like flying into LAX but a little farther south. Flight time was 4 hours and 22 minutes.

@Lukascrazydude thanks SadBoi Broccoli

@Jacob_Layton it’s a fun airport because of the approach and short runway!


Yes! Very cool airport indeed. Especially in real life, nothing quite like a full-power takeoff! I can’t imagine what it would be like in a 767 because the heavy gates can hold a 767-200. 🤔
