Join us for this week’s Friday Night Flight:
Ethiopian High Elevation
At 7,625 ft, the field elevation at HAAB along with the surrounding mountainous terrain can present some challenges for approaches, as well as departures. For this week’s event, we head out to Ethiopia for another great FNF! Come out in your favorite Ethiopian Airlines aircraft to show your support and fill up the skies above Africa!

Its an illusion. This is right after takeoff and when you extend the gear it first tilts a bit on the 787
Great event should be fun, love mountan flying…

Great to see a continent that is underused in a FNF :)
Is it me, or have they edited the photo to make the 787 gear look tilted? Looks amazing though, wish all the planes had tilted gears :(
He just snapped the pic while retracting the gear.
The a330 and 747 (in game) actually have a little bit of gear tilt.
“Its gonna take a lot to drag me away from you. There’s nothing that a hundred men or more could ever do. I bless the rains down in Africa. Gonna take some time to do the things we never had.”
