Before I start I want to wish (to everyone who celebrates) a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. We’ve been through some tough times yet we made it to this point. Spend some time with your families (whether virtually or in person) and may everyone receive what they desired.
Hello everyone. Today is Christmas Eve. Usually I would fly home on this day on IF (which is what I did, from FOR-BSB-MIA-RIC-LGA ), but today I thought I’d share a special flight that I have been dying to fly for ages: Miami to Quito
What’s so special about this route is that it was operated by AA’s 757 which as y’all know, was retired. Also who can resist the R36 approach? To make this flight even more memorable, I used the 1968 AA livery- an icon in the skies. Without further ado, let’s go:
Flight Time: 3:26
Old meets new as we depart Miami
Spectacular waters during the first hour
1 hour later we fly over Panama City
After 3 hours and 20 minutes we’re aligned with Runway 36. Speedy, might I add.
Parked with Door L2 open
Nose shot with all visible doors open
So that’s the end of a scenic flight. Of course rate below which photo you thought looked best and I’ll see you in the next one
