Today I participated in an event made by @PlaneCrazy, the AA Eagle out and backs (Link at bottom of topic)! The event was super fun, loys of people attended. It was like the chaos CLT regional flights are, with so many planes, it’s a mess sometimes. But this event ran perfectly.
I was flying a CRJ 200 from Charlotte (KCLT) to New Bern (KEWN), a short but fun 45 minute hop. A nice little plane the CRJ-700 is, it served me well on my two flights. Here are some photos from the event.
The tail of my CRJ-700 reflecting the morning sunlight while @Lucas_Brien sits behind me preparing his flight with his CRJ9.
There were several others on the other side of concourse E, @Luke_Sta, @Gtmkm98, @David_Mullen just to name a few. By now we were just finishing up our preparations for our flights.
In the takeoff line, I am waiting behind @InfiniteNick, while @Captain_Awerty and I believe @jake wait to takeoff behind me.
In this photo, @InfiniteNick and @Gabe_Z preform a parallel CRJ-900 takeoff from CLT outbound to their regional destinations.
Well on my way to New Bern, I took this photo while turning towards my next waypoint heading while cruising at 20,000 feet.
Passing over the threshold of runway 4 at New Bern, on my way to a not so great landing. There was 14knot winds at 300 feet, then at 50 feet, the wind suddenly disappeared, so even without wind, my bad approach set me up for a bad landing.
Luckily, after a 1.5 hour wait at New Bern, I was able to have a good takeoff. Here, I’m retracting my gear embarking on my flight to Charlotte.
After a stressful approach, (due to minimum fuel), I successfully landed at CLT airport. I was one of the first to touchdown back on Charlotte Asphalt, and I did go smoothly (butter). Huge Thanks to @IFATC_Andrew for getting me in quickly and safely.
Once I landed I met up with @Luke_Sta and the host @PlaneCrazy at Concourse E at CLT. Luke and PlaneCrazy are pictured here.
About 4 hours after the start of this awesome event, host @PlaneCrazy and his CRJ9 are sitting at the gate, with the tail of an American A320 sitting in the background.
I hope you enjoyed these photos, and feel free to give feedback. I would like to say thanks you for viewing and have a great day!
