Phoenix to Portland
So back last Monday, on Memorial Day in the United States, many airports in Mexico, and Phoenix were the featured airports so I was looking for some fun routes out of Phoenix that I could fly for @AmericanVirtual and would provide for a fun flight with some good views while I finished my homework for the week. I thought about airports like Spokane, Reno or Sacramento but I settled on flying to Phoenix because I could use the 737, which is surprisingly an aircraft that I love, but barely fly. I decided to use the old vintage TWA livery, which is my favorite special American livery in-game, 3rd in real life behind the America West and US Airways Heritage liveries. I always love Portland, and somehow, on this flight I was still blown away by the amazing scenery of Oregon and the super fun approach into the airport. I took off just after 8 AM Eastern, or 5 AM in Phoenix which would time my departure with an amazing sunrise I. The desert, I them flew North over Nevada, California and up into North Oregon. The scenery change was amazing, from Desert to Mountains to Lush Forests and it definitely did not disappoint. I flew the Mill Visual
To runway 28R (I put a picture of the approach in the “Flight Details” box) and flight time was 2 hours and 22 minutes.

As always please let me know your thoughts and your favorite photo!
Portland got its name when 2 Pioneers, named Asa Lovejoy and Francis Pettygrove flipped a coin in 1845 to decide the name of Portland, Pettygrove won the coin flip and named it Portland, but if Lovejoy won, what would be the name of Portland today?
