From The Great Salt Lake to the Forests of Oregon

Hey guys! I’m back with another screenshot thread! This time I’ll be sharing some images I took during last week’s Flash Flight, which was a flight from Salt Lake City to Portland, OR. Both airports (especially KSLC) were very busy, and I managed to get some cool shots!

Route information:
Route: KSLC—->KPDX
Flight Time: 2 hours and 24 minutes
Callsign: Delta 1744
Aircraft: Boeing 737-900
Server: Expert

Now for the pictures!

In line for runway 34L. Anyone who was at the event knows how crazy the line for 34R was, but luckily I was instructed by ATC to go to 34L which, at the time, was only starting to grow a line

Thanks for checking these out, and let me know if you have a favorite!

Yup. Not sure about Delta’s -700s and -800s, but I do know their -900ERs gave ETOPS.

Oh, ugh! Don’t know how I made that error!

Maybe I shouldn’t make topics late at night…thanks for catching that!
