A few days ago I flew Lima to Houston, United flies this route with their 767s year round and their 757s seasonally. I used the 757 because it is my favorite plane in the world, even if it is terrible in Infinite Flight. I left Lima around 12 PM which timed my arrival with Sunset in Houston. The Andes were an amazing few for the first few hours of the flight, and then the Mountains of Central American were fun to see as well. My flight time was 6 hours 42 minutes.

After an unstable approach we were forced to go around as seen by this Delta 757 sitting at the gate bound for Atlanta
After circling back toward the runway, we touchdown just before sunset at 5:44 PM in Houston
As always please let me know your thoughts and your favorite photo!
I know this may not have been one of my better posts, but hopefully I can get back with Portland to San Diego tomorrow
