A special flight | Houston to Doha | Qatar A350-900

Houston to Doha

As promised, with ATC in Texas, I decided to fly to Doha. This was a special flight for me because I hit 3,000 hours halfway through this flight. Thank you all for being so great, hopefully I can get to 5k soon!
I had a night time departure out of Houston’s 8R, then climbed to 33,000 and then stayed at 35,000 until Turkey, where I climbed to 39,000 and eventually 41,000 before a sunset arrival in Doha. Enough talking, let’s g e t i t

DUDE! Those photos are fantastic! I wish I could learn how to blur out that background, makes it look so realistic. What application do you use to edit?


You can use google snap seed To blur out only a certain area if you want @Jack_Q

No, you’re scary about how you know that. 90% of the people in my school don’t know that, only really my friends. I might’ve mentioned it once in like January but I don’t think I really ever have 😂
