Heading back to Amsterdam in 1991 Via Paris

Did another retro flight (kinda) which I’ve done a flight which people doesn’t go there a lot around Venezuela with the Air France DC-10 which was retired in the early 90s and ridin on a Air France A320-200 (pretend it’s a A320-100) which goes from Paris to Amsterdam

Airbus A320-100 (I know it’s actually a -200 but pretend it’s a -100 ok?)

Turn your brightness up for better view since there’s no moon


Sun rising over the islands of Portugal

2 hours landing when we landed almost 9 hours

Another 2 hours later for waiting for a Air France A320-200 (pretend it’s a -100) for another flight to Schiphol

After a easy approach with ATC and some headwinds

A better landing then what I’ve had in the DC-10 and Amsterdam was beginning to be packed at the time
(also today is the 50th anniversary of when the DC-10 took flight so its kinda a tribute to it since its there)
It’s kinda been a long time since ive don’t retro photos hope I make more soon…

Anyway I would recommend you to fly to Caracas since most of north of South America is pretty nice to tour and see during flying and Caracas has some international diversity so I would say fly from LFPG-SVMI

Caracas is awesome, it has beautiful mountains on approach and departure
