A London to Gibraltar flight

Today I flew from London Heathrow to Gibraltar. I simulated a real British Airways flight!

Details

Route: EGLL - LXGB
Flight Time: 2:40
Aircraft: A320
Server: Training

Taking off at London(it was the controller’s fault)


A beautiful and challenging approach to LXGB

And finally, after two hours a not so buttery, crosswindish landing.

Parked at the gate while an Easyjet A320 lands behind.

I hope you guys enjoyed as always!

Nice flight! A good attempt at the RNAV 09 approach but a little too close to the rock 😬

Hope you enjoyed it! Fun little airport 😉

A demanding airport. Short runway and just no “longlanding”. Otherwise take off and go around the hill again.

Also very nice pictures.

You could have aborted the takeoff but great photos overall

Great Photos! But the first, makes me lose faith in my own country. That Air Canada pilot doesnt know how to fly.

These are really nice! I love the BA livery on the A320

Sure, maybe he cleared you, but you didn’t have to go 🙃

Test, he the controller cleared me for immediate takeoff, and when I was pulling the throttle up I heard a engine noise and that pilot, which was KLM and his callsign was TN557E passed over me.

But if you could see him (visually, on the map or its tiny square), then you could just hold until the plane left the runway

No, I didn’t know that he was there.
