Midday in Hollywood to a Sunset in the Tar Heel State

LOS ANGELES to CHARLOTTE
So yesterday I flew Los Angeles to Charlotte. It was a featured route for @AmericanVirtual. American obviously flies this route in real life and I used the Airbus A321 which Is used in real life. I took off from Los Angeles at 11 AM (Pacific Time) and flew East over Los Angeles (After taking off from 24L), over Palm Springs, just north of Phoenix, over Amarillo, Oklahoma City and through North Carolina into Charlotte. I landed in Charlotte at 5:30 (Eastern Time) as the sun was setting, which was a great sunset even though I’m pretty sure it was Snowing in real life as I landed. Flight time was a very short 3 Hours and 36 Minutes.

Thank you!! It means a lot if you think I’m one of the best :)

And I just fly a lot on my IPhone 6s. If I’m not flying for AAVA, I’m flying a scenic route. I do a lot of flying with my 6s because I got an 11 so I can do some really long flights. And I have the following flights done, I just have to get the screenshots for them

-Montreal to Toronto (1:09)
-Minneapolis to Seattle to Kona (8:04)
-Toronto to Seoul (13:11)
-Doha to Philadelphia (13:41)
-Auckland to Chicago (13:04)

Looking great as always, and especially the A321 is simply great. As biased as I am towards that aircraft, your pictures showcase its beauty very well (and the scenery too). Fantastic topic once again!

Also you never go wrong with a cockpit view of it looks that cool!
Thanks for sharing!

The A321 is one of my favorite airplanes in Infinite Flight because of how updates it is, but I have to say it… 737>A320 and 787>A350 🤭

Please don’t hate me

And the scenery is always fun on transcontinental flights like this, thanks!
