Northern Oregon to Southern Oregon - Portland International Flyout

Hello there!

Earlier today one of the Pacific Northwest’s underrated and overlooked large airports was the site of a flyout event, that being Portland International Airport, located on the tippy top of Oregon in, well, you guessed it, Portland. Here’s the pictures I got from there and my flight.

The Usual Mini-Mod Repellent

Server: Expert
Route: KMFR-KPDX-KMFR (but focusing on the last two)
Aircraft: De Havilland DASH8 Q400, in the old Alaska Horizon livery
Cruise Alt: 22,000 up to PDX, 21,000 down to MFR

Original Event Link: 24SEP2022 / 1800Z / Adventures in the Cascades @KPDX COMPLETED

And now on to the photos!


1| Takeoff from Medford to fly up to the flyout (because why not)


2| Landing in Portland with an @CaptainOveur in the MD-11F chilling in the background


3| Sitting around with @United403 (furthest) and @RagonDragon (closest) in their Q400s just after a brief server outage


4| Old vs. New livery with @Butter575 rolling up in the Alaska 737


5| Pushed back and starting engines, with @AmericanB772 in the bananabus and @OregonAviaton in the E170


6| The various Alaska flights gathering at 28L. Also my brakes imminently fail and a slide a little ways out towards the runway before i catch it.


7| Launching off runway 28L, and @CaptainOveur makes a reappearance in the MD-11F


8| A different and, to me, a much more scenic view of my liftoff


9| Cruising back down to Medford, and a Q400 crewed by @MacGyver landing in Eugene beneath me


10| Engine shutdown

I couldn’t find the Alaska livery for the Q400. Is it new?
