Hey everyone! I hope you’re doing well and staying safe. I recently did a flight from Newark (KEWR) to Tokyo (RJAA) in the United B772. The flight was nice and uneventful until the end where 34kts of crosswind forced me to go around. This flight took me over the beautiful Canadian, Alaskan, and Japanese scenery.
Callsign: UVAL313 Heavy
Aircraft: United Airlines B772
Flight Time: 13 hours 7 minutes
Here are the pictures:
At the gate, waiting for pushback clearance while the sun rises in Newark.
Cockpit view while we bank to the left on our departure out of KEWR.
After an uneventful cruise, we begin to see the northernmost part of Japan.
Beginning our descent as the sun starts to set.
Turning onto final after having to go around on the first attempt.
Winds are better, but still a strong crosswind.
Gear finally hits the runway. It wasn’t a pretty landing, but decent considering the winds.
Parked at the gate in Japan.
Thanks for viewing! Please reply with any questions, comments, or concerns!
