ANGOLA TO SOUTH AFRICA
This is the best way of picking a route if you want variety and random spontaneous flying! Open Flightradar24 (or another plane tracking app) and zoom out as far possible, close your eyes, scroll around in all directions as far as you can without paying attention, scroll some more, put your finger on the screen, BING! The closest flight wins.
Today my finger landed directly TAAG Angola Airlines DT570, which departs the Angolan capital Luanda, bound for Cape Town. A quick check of Infinite Flight’s available aircraft and liveries and there it is - their Boeing 737-700.
Cruising at 40,000 feet, D2-TBG is our flying machine of choice today - a 16 year old 737-7 that’s been with the airline since new. Airspace was quiet and the journey was smooth. There were some quite strong easterly winds at times, but nothing this aircraft can’t handle.
I hope you enjoyed coming along for this random journey - give this method of picking a flight a try if you like and let me know how it goes!
