Afternoon Reno to Seattle Flight

I often check Flight Radar 24 to see if any cool flights are flying over me. I have recently seen a lot of flights from either Seattle to Reno, or vice versa. So, I thought to myself, “Why don’t I do that?”. So I did, and here are some photos from along the way. Hope you enjoy!

After pushing back from Gate B09, and departing from Runway 34L, I am on my way to Seattle. I must have been light, because I rotated before crossing runway 7.

Still climbing, and my (very few) passengers get a nice view, from both sides as I now have Pyramid Lake on my right, and Honey Lake on my left (which I guess I just noticed you cant really see, but that’s ok…)

I have now reached my cruising altitude of FL360, this photo was taken while just surpassing Summer Lake.

This very scenic route also includes the Three Sisters Mountains

To conclude our Cascade Mountain Range trend, we have (from foreground to background), my home mountain of Mt. Hood, Mt. Adams, Mt St. Helens, and Mt. Rainier

A beautiful shot that I couldn’t miss of Mt. Rainier

And my terrible landing that consisted of almost no flare whatsoever, no butter today…

I’ll try to remember that the next time either or them are featured, or I’m just feeling like doing a random flight.

Epic phots 🔥

I love the Alaska livery so much.

@lucaviness and @anon38496261 Thank you both for the compliments! The Alaska livery is probably one of my favorite liveries, in my opinion, I like both their retro, and new
