Close to the longest domestic flight in the world behind BOS-HNL. This was quite the flight, first a wild departure, then a very busy pacific, then some killer scenery, then a pretty landing in JFK. Let’s get to it!

Here we go!
Our ride for today at the very messy PHNL, 26s and 22s were in use, so naturally it was a mess and very dangerous for the arriving aircraft due to the terrain. But having all planes do the 26L visual is near impossible, and would likely result in several go-arounds.
Blasting off of 22R! …you heard me right, 22R (just under 7000 ft long). That runway irl never handles airliners let alone a 767. But that’s what ATC assigned me, so I had to follow instructions. I made it off the ground because I spooled up to TOGA power with the parking break on, plus the 767 is a rocket ship.
Reached cruise, here is our super busy pacific with tons of people flying the same way points, and hopefully the correct IFR altitude or else we would’ve had some big problems. I also passed Misha later on leading the flashlight.
