Nice! I think I might have seen you yesterday at WSSS… I was planned to go to London, but then my phone crashed. 😔

Dang, crashes are the worst. I was 2 hours away from completing a 16 hour flight yesterday and then my iPad decided to just crash the app… Turned out I needed to lower the graphics settings.

Nice pics! I love the long haul. My first was PHX-LHR on the BA 747 in 2018. I wish I could do longer a350 routes, but I can’t go above 12 hours or my iPad will have a stroke.

Thanks! 12 hours is still a good amount of time for long hauls! I’m thinking of buying a laptop fan just to place under my iPad to keep it a little cool during long periods.

Thank you! And yeah definitely, my strategy currently has been short/mid hops during the day and long-hauls overnight. Seems to work out well for me!

Congrats on your first long haul, I remember mine was a BA A380 (EGLL > KLAX). I try not to do long hauls as much anymore because my iPad likes to die on me…

Lovely pictures, the last one with another aircraft on final is nice!

Thanks! I had charging issues because my iPad was using too much power at first but I turned down my brightness, graphics, etc. and would charge more efficiently. I also have it connected to my MacBook which has a fast charging feature.

Beautiful shots! I should do a long haul again in the near future. Might wait until the 777 comes out ;)

Thank you! I want to start doing the KLAX - EGLL route but I’m still on TS, can’t wait to do it on ES though.
