Flying with Gordon Pt. 51

DL 820 (SAN-ATL)
4hrs 1min
Boeing 737-900er
Captain J. Gordon

Today, I flew home (Atlanta) from San Diego!! This flight went extremely well. There were a few things that got under my skin a little, but nothing that harmed the flight. For one, I was SUPER early. I guess my cruising speed was waaaayyy higher than the actual flight, so I ended up arriving 20mins earlier than the real flight. The worst part about coming in early, is that you don’t really have time to look at FlightRadar24 while you’re landing. With that being said, ATL switched the runways from the 8’s and 9’s to the 26’s, 27’s and 28 🙄 I was mad at first, but the landing made up for it 😎👨🏾‍✈️ Anyway, Merry Christmas to all and I’ll see you all in the skies 😊

I spawned and departed KATL for KCSG just shortly after you landed and and ended the flight. I was trying to catch your landing but as you stated, you arrived early. Anyway, Merry Christmas @JGordon!

And I don’t know what’s been wrong with the weather lately but the winds don’t really have effect on the planes like they used to. 100+kts of wind would have my plane rocking everywhere

only 50 parts lol


Oh yeah. I forgot I removed one 😂
