It’s Friday! So you know what that means (I’m sure you don’t). It’s my weekly 757 awareness post. For this week I have an interesting post from Tegucigalpa in Honduras and Central America, to Trinidad and Tobago, in the Caribbean or South America because you can look at it both ways. Even though I’m sure it’s categorized as one or the other. Whenever I’m randomly looking at FlightRadar24 I see a lot of DHL 757s in Central and South America and yesterday I saw one flying Panama City to Port of Spain Piarco, so I decided to go a little North of Panama and into Tegucigalpa and fly from there to Port of Spain. I have mixed feelings about the livery, on one hand I think the red lettering looks really cool on a 757 but on the other, it looks like a McDonalds Ad campaign. I took off just after 3PM Eastern so I landed at sunset with a flight time of 3 hours and 19 minutes.
These are awesome! The 757 awareness thing is a great idea too!
I have a good 757 route. Park at Concourse B at PANC in a Delta 757. Pushback, taxi to Runway 33, takeoff from runway 33, follow the NOEND4 departure, climb to 37,000 feet, begin descent after four or five hours, follow a STAR into KMSP, make butter at KMSP, Park at the Delta terminal at KMSP, and make a 757 awareness topic about your realistic 757 flight from PANC to KMSP.
