A Coruña Visual

Hey all!

With Spain being the featured country for the FNF today, I decided to avoid the congested LEMD and LEBL, and opted for the beautiful northern coast of spain.

I flew took off from Bilbao, and landed in the northwestern shipping hub of A Coruña. Bilbao Airport (LEBB) is a sizeable airport, and while they do have direct service to A Coruña, it is on Vueling and Volotea, not Iberia. However, I have never used the Iberia livery on the CRJ-1000, so I decided to give it a try!

A Coruña Airport (LECO) has one runway (03/21). While 21 has an ILS, 03 does not. Because of prevailing winds, 03 was being used today, so I enjoyed the beautiful visual approach through the mountains!


Route: LEBB-LECO

Aircraft: CRJ-1000

Airline: Iberia Regional (Air Nostrum)

Registration: EC-MLC

Flight Time: 58 minutes

Enjoy!

I flew into Bilbao today. Can definitely say it is a beautiful approach, so decided to fully hand fly it with the live cockpit not HUD of the A320. Best decision yet.
