Hi everyone, welcome back to another episode of my flights and yes, I am finally posting back in this category! This flight I’m doing is quite a special one from Guam, Micronesia to Koror, Palau! Yes, you might have not heard of both of these places, but I have to say, they are incredibly picturesque (and remote.) This flight is operated by a Boeing 737-824 in real life, but since the 757 flies better, I changed the aircraft type. Also, something worth noting is the approach to runway 9 in Palau, which has hilly terrain on short final and the runway is just 2195 metres (7200 feet) long, which can only handle narrowbody and select widebody aircraft. Featured are the scenic views of the coral atolls during the flight and of course, for the first time, a moonshot!
Time: 2h 14min
Route: PGUM PTRO
Guam. Just look at the beautiful sunrise!
V1. Rotate… In other words, ‘nyoom’ and ‘moon’.
V2, Positive Rate, Gear Up. Oooh, the sound!
The 757 going ‘nyoooom’ past the ‘moooon’.
The beautiful Yap Islands and the coral atolls.
Descending into Palau…
Flaps down, gear down, final approach. Crosswinds all the way down.
100, 50, 40, 30, 20, 10, butter. A smooth landing on runway 9!
Welcome to paradise!
