A Clear Morning in Tokyo to a sunset on the Australian Outback


I’m going to start this by saying that, yes I know I have a lot of Sunrise and Sunset posts, but I don’t change the time, if I fly at sunrise, the post will be at sunrise. I don’t change the time because I feel like if I change the time, the post is fake. Anyways a few nights ago I flew Tokyo to Perth. I took off at 8:15 PM for me and woke up at 5:30 the next morning to land, which is as the sun was setting in Perth. ANA flies this route in real life with the 787-8, but we only have the 78X in game so I used it. Flight time was 9 hours and 35 minutes.

I never use this angle, but this photo was too cool to leave out. We fly over the active stratovolcano of Sakurajima, it sits on its own island which is translated to Cherry Blossom Island. Sakurajima is the most active volcano in Japan and actually erupted in November of last year

Woah! These are some of your best I think. That first pic with the two prettiest aircraft is great! I always zoom in on the wing view, always seems too far out on most aircraft, so happy to see you doing it here. That volcano is stunning! Sunset arrival is cool too


Thanks a lot @Lud_d!

It means a lot if you think I’m one of the best!

And yeah, not going to lie it was ALMOST a tail strike, I was trying to do a steep takeoff of because the photos of the gear going up look better with a steep photo, but I’d didnt even use that photo 😂
So I just had an almost tail strike for nothing

Thanks as always 😉

This is one of my favorite posts too because I’ve only ever flown to Perth once before this (now twice because as I’m typing this in flying Perth to London) and I used a lot of angles I don’t use often, especially that volcano one which is my personal favorite

Jk, thanks a lot!

And that’s one of my favorite pictures I’ve ever taken so that’s why I posted it even though I’ve never used that angle before. It was @Helmethead style :)

And the volcano kind of looks like it’s erupting doesn’t it?
