Would you like to hear about the flight where just about every weird thing you could think of happened on my flight? Here’s the true story.
First, I go to take off at Palm Springs on ATC playground at Runway 31L. Two people are in front of me, waiting for a guy called Turkish 204 to arrive, but he came in too quick and went around. While waiting, one plane had its wing glitched into the other plane, in these pictures.
Once he went around, the two planes took off, and just like always, even in real life, right when it’s my turn, I’m told to hold. Once Turkish 204 came in, on the other side of the runway, ANOTHER plane touched down too. Turkish then swerved off the runway at 122 kts.
I fly to KLAX. When I’m descending right downwind into Runway 06R, I’m lower than 10,000 ft, but a plane LOWER than me is going 268 kts.
As I’m on indefinite final, meaning I was touching down despite almost all circumstances, and I see another plane on final next to me. At first, I could’ve sworn it looked like it was coming into the runway next door, but at the very last minute, I could see he was landing right in front of me.
Luckily I stopped before I slammed into him, but it’s a flight I’ll never forget…
