As we now know, the B757 rework draws nearer and nearer, with the rework now in the internal beta testing stage. I decided to try a flight on the 757 as a farewell to the original aircraft. I managed to drag along @SWA1997 with me on this 3 hour flight from Copenhagen in Denmark (EKCH) to Keflavik in Iceland (BIKF) on the Training Server. This flight is flown in the Icelandair 757, so we were able to fly to Iceland with the flag carriers livery. Enough chit chat, let’s get onto the photos! Enjoy!

Me and @SWA1997 parked at the appropriate gates, going through the start-up procedures
Me starting my takeoff roll, with @SWA1997 holding short.
SWA1997 lining up, while I’m passing 3,000 feet
Over the North Atlantic, with 2,000 feet of separation (don’t worry 😉)
The Icelandic Eastern coast, and the eastern front of the biggest glacier in Iceland, Vatnajökull
About to descend, over a lake in Iceland, that was the site of the first Icelandic parliaments!
Short final on runway 10 at Keflavik
After I had landed safely, SWA1997 had to go around!

The beautiful tail of the Icelandair 757 (in my opinion)
That’s all for today! I hope you enjoyed the photos! And a special thanks to @PilotA320 for providing ATC services at both Copenhagen and Keflavik!
