Hey y’all! Yesterday I participated in @anon38496261’s PANC event, which on the second wave I took the Allegiant A320 down to Las Vegas! It was a great flight with a shaky finale, including a missed approach and 2 go arounds! Overall it was a really fun flight despite my horrid piloting skills in the end.

Saying one final goodbye to Anchorage
As we pass south of 60 degrees North, the beautiful South Alaskan mountains finally come into view!
Cruising over the beautiful Vancouver Island at FL330
In a heartbeat, we begin a very unique and difficult approach onto Runway 08L at KLAS, which is hardly ever used for landings there due to these beautiful mountains to the west of the runway.
After a tedious visual approach I messed up the runway intercept and it’s back to the drawing board!
1 of the 2 go arounds I had, excluding my missed approach
Finally touching down on the opposite runway (Winds pulled a 180 on me), though the landing was far from pretty…
Parked at gate A20 with the final bits of sunlight leaving for the night
Which photo was your favorite? Let me know how I did, this is my first time posting my photos!
