Blasting out of the nation’s capital

Climbing high

Most of Delta’s 757 have winglets but the one I took irl didn’t have them which was odd

Reached cruise

The Grand canyon! Always a great sight to see when flying into LAX

Approach

Safe landing in LAX!

Great work!! Work on that aileron deflection so that way the wing doesn’t dip when you use the rudder. Trust me, I was doing the same thing when I first flew the 757 on open beta. Question for you, how did you share your video from google drive?

I believe in real life there is an ops where it’s late on the evening and there isn’t a lot of traffic where they use 25R for both takeoff and landing. I could be wrong though.

I believe I’ve seen heavies come in on 25R (on YouTube 😂) but that’s it.

I upload the file to Google drive from iMovie, then I go to details and activity and change the view permissions to “view” which means that anyone with the link can view the file. I just copy that link into the topic.
