Friday Night Flight - "Southern Cross" From Sydney To New Zealand @ YSSY - 091730ZSEP16

Hey community members!

Join us for this week’s FNF Event:
“Southern Cross” From Sydney To New Zealand

On September 10, 1928, two trans-Pacific pilots flew the first flight from Sydney to Christchurch, New Zealand in a Fokker monoplane. Their names were Kingsford-Smith and Ulm, and the aircraft’s name was “Southern Cross”. Let’s celebrate the 88th anniversary of this flight in the Sydney Region in any Australian or New Zealand livery.

There are no established routes for this event. Come to the Sydney region in any Australian or New Zealand aircraft to join in celebrating this historic event. Team up with other pilots for formation flights, ramp screenshots, or to just enjoy flying for the love of flying on Infinite Flight. Looking forward to some awesome screenshots!

Post your best screenshots for a chance to have it shared on our Official Infinite Flight Instagram page at

Why ask a question only to post the quote with the answer to your own question?


So what I understood that the Answer is No

It’s not difficult to understand.


Ah ok I just Asked to check if I could fly Generic Dash 8 or 208 (any propeller) because the plane that the pilots used is a Fokker Monoplane

I’m definitely

Cool event. Hope we get everything staffed on the expert server for the best experience flying from YSSY to YSCB

You can fly the QantasLink Dash 8.
