Flying with Gordon Pt. 40

2hrs 35mins
Boeing 737-900er
Delta
Captain J. Gordon

Today, I flew from Atlanta to Minneapolis!! Today’s flight went fairly well. It wasn’t the smoothest flight, but it was smooth enough. The takeoff was very windy, and the cruise was very turbulent. The approach had to be one of my favorites. I love doing downwinds onto the runway!! The landing was pretty smooth and the runway turnoff was perfect 👌🏾😊 I have come to the conclusion that I turn into the gate waaayyyy too fast. Most of you know that I like to have smooth and realistic flights, and turning into the gate has clearly been a challenge for me. I try slowing down but for some reason, the brakes struggle to work unless you use 50% or more braking 🤷🏾‍♂️ Anyway, today was a good day and I hope you all can say the same. I’m officially counting down until the last “Flying with Gordon” episode. There are only 10 left 😧 Until next time, see you in the skies!!

Great photos! For some reason the night photos are really good even though I don’t think you edited them at all. Nice job!

I really like photo 8. I don’t know why I just think it’s something about the angle that drew me to it.

The only editing I do is cropping and zooming in 😂

Mine are numbers 5 and 7. I love the new interior drone feature

You shouldn’t stop tbh it’s interesting

Maybe after 50 you could change the plane so you have sum ✨fresh✨ to work with

Yes the 757

Completely forgot about that for a second

That would probably be the best choice so u could do long hauls and short hauls
