On Saturday, June 29, I flew on N447WN from Austin to Sacramento. This was a very scenic flight with some rare catches on the ground in Austin! As we were boarding, I was able to catch the Lufthansa a330 from FRA. Then, upon checking FR24, I found out that the Lufthansa a380 which was supposed to go to IAH had diverted to Austin! And luckily, we taxied right behind it. Then, as we turned and held short, we got a great view of the A380!! Then, I noticed that the Norwegian 789 was on final right behind it! This was incredibly rare and will never happen again. I will never forget this. We then took off, and I checked out (Netflix), and then saw that we flew very close to the Grand Canyon and also Vegas. This provided some great views. However, I didn’t get any pics of Vegas. The approach into Sacramento was surprisingly scenic and mountainous. We then proceeded to GREASE the runway. Very good landing indeed. Flight time was 3:15. In Sacramento, we got to get out on stairs instead of the Jetway. It was cool! It was a great flight! I took many pictures, but because we can only have 10, I chose the BEST of the best. Side note: All pics were taken on IPhone 8 so sorry if they are bad quality. Enjoy!
