A Quirky Flight! | Dallas - New York | Atlas Air 747-400


Yes, you heard me right, a 747-400 for Dallas - New York!
Let me provide some context: this is a real flight, it starts in Dallas, then goes to New York, then to Anchorage! This is flown as Atlas Air has only a couple 747-4’s and wants to use them at all connecting routes to Anchorage, so Volià! A 747-4 for a regional flight!

Let’s dive into more of the details!

Let’s see some pictures!

At one of the only gates to support a 747 in DFW!

An American B77W watching as I rotate!

Departure out of DFW with KDAL in the background!

After a nice 2hrs of cruising we start approaching New York at Scranton VOR!

An extraordinary view of Central Park, as I start to turn to JFK!

A moonshot as I begin my RNAV approach!

With my creativity on the line, I found this stunning view, as I switch to manual control down to Runway 22L!

With some network problems I couldn’t bring you my gate photo 😔, Sorry!

Today, I’m trying to only lightly edit the photos through Lightroom, to bring more “Infinite Flight” into to my photo!

I hope you had a great IFATC @ home, and I’m glad you took a stop at my thread!


Great moonshot and I love the last one! It’s very creative, something I’ve never seen before. Keep it up!
