Early morning from Melbourne to Auckland

I saw that YMML had an active tower and decided to do a little flight from there

Aircraft: DC10
Route: YMML-NZAA
Altitude: FL350, FL370
Cruise speed: Mach 0.85
Flight time: 2:58
Server: Expert


Pushing back in Melbourne. Unfortunately it’s not 3D yet, but I’m sure it will be soon


Departing Melbourne


We’ve reached our cruising altitude of FL350. We Later climbed up to FL370


Goodbye Australia 👋
Reached the coast about 20 minutes after take off, now it’s time to serve the passengers some breakfast as we got more than two hours of uneventful cruising above the water ahead of us…


Good morning New Zealand, nice to meet you



Runway 05L at Auckland really has a nice approach. I like that view


On final runway 05L


Safely made it it to the gate. I think the new guidance system might need some improvement, as this is literally the way it wanted me to park my aircraft and if you ask me this really is unnecessarily close. A few meters further away would’ve also been more practical for the jetbridges, as they wouldn’t have had to move so far to reach my doors. Anyway, those little things can absolutely be forgiven if you ask me.

Thank you very much for watching

Great shots! You have earned my Seal of Approval™ for using the ANZ DC-10. I think that livery is amazing on the DC-10, hope we can get it on the 747 sometime soon.

Thanks. I really like the livery on this airplane too, it just fits so well. Though Air New Zealand has quite a history of nice liveries anyway if you ask me
