Captain J. Gordon

Today, I flew home (Atlanta) from Ontario, California!! This flight went pretty well. The winds did NOT cooperate with me on this flight though 😂 it was very turbulent and windy the WHOLE flight 🤦🏾‍♂️ The coolest part of the flight is that we took off on runway 26R and landed on runway 26R. Of course, I greased the landing in Atlanta😎👨🏾‍✈️ I didn’t too much care for the takeoff because when I pressed the ALT a/p selector, the plane’s nose dropped then lifted back up quickly. As I said before, the smallest things make me not want to fly anymore 😂 On departure, we made a sharp turn to the left to avoid interfering with California’s many different airspaces. Especially LAX since ONT is right behind LAX. Btw, I love doing the sharp left turns on departure!! It adds some fun into the flight. Anyway, I hope you all had and great day and I’ll see you in the skies!!

I hate it 🤬 But, thank you 😁 I’ll start putting the compilation together once I’m done with the “Flying with Gordon” series, which is not too much further away. I’d say it’ll be over in 2 weeks or less.
