From The Cascade Mountains to Golden Hour on the Gulf Coast of Florida

Seattle to Denver to Fort Myers

I’m gonna try to make this quick because i have a Spanish Teams Meeting right now but a few days ago, Seattle, Anchorage and Los Angeles were featured airports which gave me the opportunity to try a random flight that I’ve been wanting to for a little while now. Fort Myers (RSW) is my favorite airport in Florida because my grandmom used to have a house there, and it was where I was on my first ever flight when I was about 5, from Atlantic City. I also love the approach into Fort Myers, especially from the West, crossing over the blue water of the Gulf of Mexico and then over Sanibel Island and Fort Myers Beach. It is on the West Coast of Florida and away from the the usually busy Miami area. Fort Myers is a fairly busy airport with many Destinations in the Eastern and Central United States. RSW even has flights from Düsseldorf with Eurowings after Air Berlin went under. It is one of the leading airports with a chance to get service to San Francisco or Los Angeles in the coming years. I’m also a huge fan of Seattle, because who doesn’t like the Pacific Northwest in Infinite Flight, it’s amazing. I wanted to fly Seattle to Fort Myers so I decided to make a stop in Denver, for one reason, to make @Luke_Sta happy. Haha just kidding, sorry Luke, I only stopped in Denver because Frontier flies Seattle to Denver and Denver to Fort Myers, so it fit well. I left Seattle just after 1PM Eastern (10AM in Seattle) and arrived in Fort Myers just after 6:15 Eastern. Flight time from Seattle to Denver was 2 hours 1 minute, and Denver to Fort Myers was 3 hours 6 minutes, for a total of 5 hours and 7 minutes. From Northwest, to Southeast.

That island in the picture is not Sanibel Island, but instead North Captiva Island. I stayed there this past Christmas, and as your can see in the picture, there is a small grass strip located there. It is called Salty Approach and I have a picture below:

Cool pics though, thanks for uploading!

Fantastic pictures! Not the most popular opinion, but the A321 is surely one of the top three most beautiful aircrafts for me. You also managed to capture it exceptionally well and the last picture just looks like an IRL Air2Ground shot.

Thanks for sharing!

Thanks Julian! I love the 321 too, it looks a teeny bit
Similar to the 757 so I have a bit of soft spot for it. And I’m happy the last one looks realistic! I always base my air to ground shots off of an Instagram account I follow, DiecastRyan
