TORONTO to SEOUL
So for the last week I’ve been doing a lot of Ultra-Long Haul flights, about a week ago I flew Toronto to Seoul, I used the Air Canada 787-9 which is used in real life. I took off from Toronto around 6:30 AM and flew Northwest over the Western Territories of Canada, the sun rose, and slowly went back down as we approached the Arctic Circle and flew over Northern Alaska. We crossed the West Coast of Alaska over Nome and flew down the East Coast of Russia, over Japan and flew west into South Korea and Seoul. I landed almost 24 hours after I left on a cold morning in Seoul.
Flight time was 13 Hours 11 Minutes which was disappointing as my longest flight was only 8 minutes longer than that, but I have that record broken now :).

The sun starts to rise as we over fly the town of Cochrane, Alberta, just west of Calgary
The sun rose and quickly fell back down below the horizon but we had a great view of the Moon over Northwest Canada, Alaska and Northern Russia
After the sun rose again we fly over the North East islands of Japan over the mountains of Higashikawa
The northern islands of Japan have some great views with mountains and beaches side by side
