Formation Flight Over the Region With the Best Scenery in the World: Patagonia

Hello, people of the IFC! Today I wanted to share some images that were taken last week during a formation flight with @TaipeiGuru. We decided to take advantage of the ATC schedule and fly around the southern tip of Argentina, called Patagonia. The views and scenery were stunning, and we just couldn’t resist sharing it!

Making our way to the western border of Argentina. It’s time to start overflying some snowy peaks!

Turning south towards Ushuaia, and beginning the straightest stretch of the route.

Formation time! We sidled up next to each other in order to get the best shot possible.

Same shot, different angle. The mountains still look fantastic, though.

Banking left in order to make our way east towards the airport.

More pictures of our bank. Look at those mountains!

Got a nice sunset shot as we begin our descent into Ushuaia.

The sun sets even further as we make our way onto final approach.

Here we are on final. What a wonderful journey!

This route is a must if you think the Alps or New Zealand is good enough…

Having been to Patagonia, this captures it so well! Awesome job!
