Friday Night Flight - Philippines Airlines 1st Asian Airlines to Cross Pacific @ PHNL - 291730ZJUL16

Hey everyone!

Join us for this week’s FNF Event:
Philippines Airlines Becomes 1st Asian Airline to Cross Pacific

This week, we celebrate the 70th anniversary of the first crossing of the Pacific Ocean by PAL becoming the first Asian airline to make the journey. The flight was made in a Douglas DC-4 originating in Oakland with one of the stops being in Honolulu. Later in December of 1946, a regular service began between Manila and San Francisco. During this time, the airline was designated as the country’s flag carrier. Join us in the Hawaii region as we celebrate this great event in aviation history!

There are no established routes for this event. Come to the Hawaii region in any PAL aircraft of your choice! Team up with other pilots for formation flights, ramp screenshots, or to just enjoy flying for the love of flying on Infinite Flight.

Nice mix up of airlines. Philippines isn’t an airline I fly for much so it’s a nice change from the usual

I’m gonna join, but it’s at 1:30 in the morning for me. I’ll try not to fall asleep. This is kind of ironic because we’re going to use the PAL livery, and most people in the Philippines would be sleeping at this event.
