EHAM - SEQM stunning approach into the mountainous Ecuador

On the 30th October there was a Amsterdam fly out to celebrate it becoming 3d so I decided to take a flight to Quito which has a beautiful descent over the mountains and an exciting approach low past the capital of Ecuador


Route: EHAM - SEQM
Aircraft: 777-200ER
Livery: KLM
Server: Expert
Altitude: fl360
Speed: Mach 0.80
Time: 12 hours 26 minutes (took longer than usual due to strong headwinds and had to circle on descent)

Passengers and cargo being loaded

Departure out of busy Amsterdam

Leaving the Netherlands

Cruising over the famous Caribbean island Sint Maarten with the Southern side being Dutch

Descending over stunning mountain ranges close to Quito

Coming in on approach and landing at SEQM

Passengers disembark and cargo unloaded ready for next flight


thinking of doing some more long haul flights out of EHAM as it is one of the best 3D airports on infinite flight and has a vast amount of interesting and unique routes!
Let me know if you want to see any other flights!

Amsterdam to Seattle is a good route.

I like the shot of the take off, it contrasts well with the airport in the background. ๐Ÿ™ƒ

Try the R36-S approach with a narrow body. Absolutely amazing.
