Captain J. Gordon

Today, I flew to Houston from Atlanta!! If you didn’t know, this is the first time in a long time that Delta has put the 738 on the ATL-IAH route. This route used to be flown by the MD90 until their retirement 🥺. Delta put the 738 on this route earlier this week, I think. This route was quick, fun, and easy. Landing in Houston was fun and a bit of a challenge due to their short runways. Landing with full flaps is always a challenge if your speed and height is not right. Plus, you can’t forget to factor in wind too. As I said, this was a great flight and I hope you all had a great day as well. As always, see you in the skies!! 😊👨🏾‍✈️

  1. LiveFlight wasn’t working for me after the 1st flight, so I used the real flight data from DL 1273 using FlightRadar24 (ATL-IAH)

  1. Preparing for departure at ATL’s gate F14

  1. Climbing off of runway 26R on a windy, Georgia day

  1. Final approach onto IAH’s runway 26L. Greasy landing of course 👨🏾‍✈️😎

  1. Shutting down the engines at IAH’s gate A15

  1. LiveFlight tracking (IAH-ATL)

  1. Preparing for departure at IAH’s gate A15

  1. Rotating off of IAH’s runway 15L

  1. Final approach onto ATL’s runway 27L. Once again, a smooth landing 👨🏾‍✈️😎

I improvise and use the A319 or A321

I would have done the same, but I’m a 737 pilot. Come on @StormyAviation. You’ve been watching long enough to know that 😂
