I could attend…but I have dinner to make now I’m back at Uni after the holidays ;/

plus I absolutely hate the Azerbaijan Airlines’ livery

also, I’m gonna arrive in Istanbul in the nick of time before the traffic jam spawns in. I’m due in 30 minutes. Hopefully, my gate doesn’t get nicked.

i wish we had some prior warning of them

I’m gonna speed up to expedite my landing into Istanbul before everyone spawns in for this event. I’m due in 25-30 minutes so I should be fine…

however I’m then scheduled to stay at the gate until 1745Z so I get to watch everyone spawn in around me xD

Flash flights are called flash flights for a reason 😁


Enjoy the rest of your flight

Why? I like the colour blue - I just don’t think the entire plane being blue works that well.

Been a while since I had ATC since I’ve flown on the Beta Server a lot recently…
