From the Andes at Noon to a Sunset on the plains of Texas

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.

Leaving Lima below the blue skies of mid-day The view of the brown, deserts of the Andes from 35,000 feet As we fly over Northern Peru, the mountains become more lush and green Crossing the Coast of Northern Colombia The brown deserts of Xico, Mexico after we overflew the entirety of Central America Starting to descend as the sun begins to set over the Texas City of Corpus Christi The plains of the Houston-Galveston area with the shining sun west of our 757 Approaching Houston as the landing lights shine through the green sky 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
