Hawaii Island Hop & Parallel Landing

I love the little flight in the Island Air Q400 between PHOG and PHNL! A beautiful route and this time I had an unexpected surprise with another aircraft on a parallel approach, runways 4L & 4R.

I am sure all realism is out the door with this one, but I don’t care too much about that…it made for an exciting arrival!

Lovely Islands!

Ah, someones called in for landing as well…

Not sure if ATC would have approved of this …

No wing tips touched at any time but it got a bit close!

Thanks for your views and any responses 😀

Great, it was a fun landing! I was surprised that you didn’t speed well ahead of me, you must have been maintaining quite a low airspeed. It was quite interesting monitoring our flightpaths as we lined up…there wasn’t a lot of room
for error 😉

Yeah haha! I was going 142knts the slowest I could do without stalling and those photos were worth it 100%!

Good, its nice to see a heavy have to slow down for a prop …usually its the Q400 that’s pushed to speed up I find. It was quite an amazing coincidence really…

I do this route and great photos but did this happen to you with q400 landings (I may have did this a little bit on purpose but it is how you suppose to land in crosswind)

Such a good livery for that plane

Well, it looks like quite a lot of my Q400 landings! They don’t always go quite as planned …🙄

I think ideally the wings should be levelled just before landing and rudder used to straighten up.

Frankly I imagine the mechanics of this would be easier in a real Q400 than on a mobile phone .🤔

I’ll take a look thanks…hmm, troubled turboprops 🤔
