Captain J. Gordon

Today has been one of the longest flying days EVER 😴 I flew from New York to Santo Domingo and back to New York. This is definitely one of my longest flying days. I have never flown for this long in one day. It has also been one of the most challenging days ever. JFK has some of the most difficult approaches and departures. (Why didn’t anyone warn meπŸ˜‘πŸ˜‚) but of course, I handled my business πŸ˜ŽπŸ‘¨πŸΎβ€βœˆοΈ Takeoff from SDQ was pretty fun as you pretty much have to start your turn to the north as soon as you rotate. The skies were pretty smooth and I can’t really complain because my flights went well. I hope you all can say the same!! You know where to find me… Come fly with me!!! Good night everyone, Captain G is sleepy 😴 (Also, look at the photobombs by the Qatar 777 and the Qantas 747)

Little low into JFK there ⭕️⭕️

Great photos though, 18 parts is nothing if not impressive.
