I am so happy
I am super hyped because I just completed 1); My first ULTRA LONG HAUL, and 2); My longest flight yet, and 3); the app didn’t crash!!
The route was Sydney, Australia to San Francisco, California; it was operated by a Boeing 787-10 aircraft owned by United Airlines.
Enough muttering. Here are the photos!!
After pushback at YSSY. Flaps 20 degrees. Passengers getting comfortable for a nice thirteen hours in a plane.
Taxing to runway 34L as a British Airways 787-9 embarks on a Project Sunrise type of adventure to EGLL. Godspeed to the pilot!
Ro-tah-taeyaye from 34L. Thirteen hours to go!
Also, the 787 totally has gear tilt! Here’s the confirmation!
Totally buzzing @Qantas094’s house 😈
Farewell to the land lubbers me harteeez
If you can find the Pacific island in this picture, you are no longer normal. also try to find the pineapple under the sea https://soundcloud.com/dj-asian-626/spongebob-krusty-krab-remix
Continuing into the sunset with one of the world’s most elegant aircraft.
I totally flew this on real time but I had to change to noon for the screenshots. The landing was flown at night using ILS
Not much to see over the ocean, so here’s gear coming down on final for runway 28L at KSFO
A very buttery touchdown with 20 knot crosswinds that I perfectly corrected for 👌
Parked at the United terminal with a totally random TBM that kept following me around @AviationFreak, do you know who this is? 😂
Shutdown checklist complete
And that’s it! That concludes the flight. Im so glad that my app didn’t crash!!
Make sure to let me know which one was your favorite! This flight might also have a gate as a Flightlapse coming up, so do watch my YT channel for that.
