Haulin’ to Guangzhou

I’m happy to share another one of my long haul flights with the IFC! Today, I am flying with the Cathay A350 from KLAX-VHHH which later will be changed to ZGGG just for some ATC coverage lol

Flight Info:

Flight Time: Quarter over 13 hours
Route: KLAX-ZGGG
Server: ES
Aircraft: A359


At TBIT waiting for push and start clearance


Taking off runway 25R


On Pacific track K just after point CEPAS


Exiting the track and turning south at Naha (Japan)


Flying overhead Shimojishima, a small Japanese island far from mainland Japan


Turning west over the southernmost tip of Taiwan


Entering Guangzhou Centre’s airspace. The Pearl River Delta (picture above) is one of the most densely populated areas on earth. It also contains three major airports, Hong Kong, Shenzhen, and Guangzhou International.


Inbound on the ILS 20L


After a firm landing, we cross runway 20R as a China Southern 787 vacates for a short taxi to parking

Thanks for your time!

A Cathay Pacific A350 into Guangzhou. People in the People’s Republic would consider this an invasion by Hong Kong hahaha. Nevertheless, great photos!
