SANTIAGO to SYDNEY
So yesterday, as I’m sure you know, Santiago was a featured airport on the ATC schedule so it was the perfect opportunity to fly one of the routes I’ve been looking to for a while, Santiago to Sydney. You may have seen my post a week ago when I flew Auckland to Santiago but this flight had very different scenery. Qantas and LATAM fly this route in Real life, but I just posted LATAM last week and I have posted A LOT of 787s. I used Qantas for the reason and used the 747-400 which they use in real life. My callsign was Qantas 28 Heavy, which is used in real life, and if there is a low numbered callsign for a flight I’m trying, you bet I’m going to use it. I took off from Santiago a little after Sunrise and flew South toward Antarctica until South became North and I approached Sydney. Flight time was 13 hours 39 minutes which is only 2 minutes off my record.
