Flying the same route I took in real life in IF! (KEF-ORD)

Date of flights: July 10th 2022 for Irl and July 11th for IF

Plane: United 757-200

Parked at gate 12 at Keflavik



Takeoff!



Cursing over northern Canada (I apologize this is not an exact replica because I took a slightly different flight path on IF)

Unfortunately I forgot to take a photo on landing IRL so I apologize but I hope you enjoyed anyways!

You can find a video of the IRL takeoff linked here: United 757-200 | Takeoff from Reykjavík - YouTube
