A West Coast Sunrise Flight

Sydney to Los Angeles 🇦🇺 • 🇺🇸

I’m not too sure what there is to explain about this flight, a couple of days ago I decided to fly the rare transpacific flight, I almost never fly transpacifically, just because me living on the east coast the timing isn’t great, I usually takeoff and land in the dark. It was Monday night and I was watching Alabama run straight through Ohio States defense so I decided to fly Sydney to Los Angeles for @AmericanVirtual, I took off just after 11:30 AM in Sydney and landed the same morning at 10:30 AM in Los Angeles after 12 hours and 57 minutes.

Flying over the Pacific toward the island of New Caledonia we pass 3,000 feet below a fellow 777 flying South toward Auckland


Over the island territory of New Caledonia 2 hours off the coast of Australia


The turquoise waters of the island coast south of the Capital of Noumea


The mountains rise as we cruise 33,000 feet above New Caledonia


The sun sets as we fly over the vastness of the Pacific


The sun starts to rise as we near the California Coast and @Udeme_Ekpo flies west bound for Australia

Those shots are so stunning! But I have a question, how the … did you passed over Chile in that flight?

That’s an Asiana A380, so I’d say Seoul.

The undercarriage of both aircraft look similar, however, there is a tiny bit of red on the left, which is part of the Asiana livery.
