A Special Flight

Hello!

Yesterday, I did a very special flight for a good friend. Yesterday was @SWA1997’s Gotcha Day, and what better way to celebrate that than with an event!? So me and @SWA1997 set up an event (linked below), and then we were off! Let me tell you, the flight from Warsaw to Bucharest is really scenic, so I was pleasantly surprised with the amazing mountains along the way. How about you see some photos of the flight instead of having me write the world’s longest topic on it?



At the gate at Warsaw Chopin airport prepping for our flight. The group’s all here!


Waiting for everyone to catch up before we depart, say hi to @Gtmkm98’s APU (don’t worry, I wasn’t too close to his plane, lol).


A snake-bend departure while blasting out of Warsaw Chopin. @thomas_purdy1 in his lone WizzAir A321 is next in line for takeoff.


@Gtmkm98 makes a return. We were both going the same speed but I kept going faster than him no matter how much I slowed down. 🤷🏻‍♂️


Beginning my descent into Bucharest Henri Airport passing over some beautiful mountains. We also passed over @SWA1997‘s home airport of LRTM on the way as well.


Final approach to Bucharest runway 26R after being guided in by @PilotA320 and @MJP_27. There is some serious low-level fog, but nothing we couldn’t handle!


After a buttery landing, I met all the another attendees at the gate. Here, we have a closeup of @SWA1997’s A318 on the ground at Bucharest.


I would like to thank our ATC and everyone who came to this wonderful event. It was a blast thanks to you! Have a great day IFC, thanks for stopping by!

And happy Gotcha Day @SWA1997!

How many times did I tag you in this one thread? 😂

A little Fact: My first thanksgiving was at a Pizza Hut in Bucharest and I of course had pizza! Lol I was 19months when I was adopted.

@SWA1997 Thanksgiving is all about being surrounded by those you care about and who care about you. Don’t sweat the small details like it being pizza. My Thanksgiving this year will be take-away curry 😁
