From the Pacific Northwest to Shanghai Pudong

Hello, and welcome back to another one of my screenshot posts! Using the long haul crash workaround, I have been able to complete some bucket list long hauls using the A350. Here’s my most recent one!


My journey began at gate 70 at Vancouver International, where I made a straight out departure to the west. My route took me over western Canada and Alaska, across the Bering Strait, southwest through Russia and China, heading back out over the Yellow Sea and East China Sea, and finally making a westerly inbound for Shanghai.

Now to the photos!

Beginning the pre-flight with the North Shore mountains in the distance.

Climbing out parallel to an Air Canada 787-9 headed east to Toronto.

Reaching our initial cruise altitude of FL340 over Vancouver Island.

Fast forward a few hours, and we are entering Russian airspace.

Banking left over Harbin, China at FL361.

After a few more hours in the air, we are turning downwind for runway 17R at Pudong.

Dropping the gear over the Nangang Waterway, one of the outlets of the Yangtze River.

Laying down an absolute greaser on 17R after almost eleven hours in the air.

Vacating left on P2 towards the end of the 11,000ft 17R.

Finally offloading our precious cargo as the Trent XWBs spool down.

As always thanks for looking! Which photo was your favorite?

Now those are some great photos, and the wing view looks so real for a second! And it seems like an interesting flight too, across Canada, Alaska, and Russia, super scenic!
