El Al 21 | A Golden Summer Sunset in the Sin City

Tel Aviv to Las Vegas


I haven’t flown the 787 in a while, so I really wanted to fly and post it because I think it is tied with the 757 for being the greatest airplane ever, it’s curves are amazing and every livery looks great on it. Originally I was flying Dallas to Madrid with American, but the stupid hurricane knocked out my power and crashed my game so I won’t be able to post that for a little while. @Ur_Friendly_Approach gave me the idea to fly an El Al flight, and considering they fly the 787 it was the perfect fit. I thought about flying to New York, Miami or San Francisco but I settled on Las Vegas. I haven’t flown into Vegas in a while but I knew the sunset approach would be stunning. I left Tel Aviv in the early afternoon which times my arrival in Vegas for a golden summer sunset. I think El Al’s livery fits on the 787 very well, and it definitely didn’t disappoint. Recently I feel like the quality of my posts have been dropping, but I think this one turned out well. Fight time was 13 hours and 47 minutes.

After flying over Europe and the bland Atlantic, the views get interesting over the hundreds of rivers and tributaries of Quebec


The foggy Rocky Mountains appear after crossing the continental shelf


The amazingly powerful 787 engines overshadow the Rockies as we fly west at 40,000 feet
