Hey mate,

These are some pretty cool photos and some nice angles. Love the photo especially of the 737 completing the right turn before landing. The angle the photo was taken at looks so majestic.

Just remember to take a look through this topic linked below as well mate, as you’re only allowed 10 photos per topic. Just a friendly heads up for future, just so you know.

Sorry, i didn’t really realized i had that much pictures, as i wanted to include everything that happened in the flight, i will edit it and delete some

No worries, it’s all good and no problem at all. The reason for the 10 photo limit, is so that posters include their 10 best photos from their flight and not a photo from every single moment. Keeps the quality of topics up to scratch.

Hey and welcome to the community !
Great photos, despite what Declan already told you. I did the same approach in Tegucigalpa a while ago with the AA Astrojet livery, thought you might wanna have a look ;)

I tried this in a 737 and nearly crashed after two go-arounds, but as @Swiss says “you can always go around”
