Parallel approach

Today I flew a flight from Nairobi to Jeddah with my friend in expert serve.But at the time we arrived Jeddah,there was no ATC on charge.So we decided to do something special.

I landed on the runway 34R and my friend landed on runway 34C.The time is about 7:30 AM local time.


Trying that approach isn’t easy as I may guess. It’s mostly luck unless you plan it properly.

A parallel approach with the same plane even!


Certainly.My friend was quicker than me at about 6-7kts,so he landed earlier.It’s too difficult to touch down at the same time.

Very nice! How long was the flight?

About three hours. Not very long.

Nice! (Just because I’d like to fly it for my YT channel), is it a real flight with the 787-8?

No, the real flight should be a smaller plane.It should be 738.

Nice to see Kenya Airways getting some attention. Great shots 👍🏾

Btw, the NBO-JED route is only operated by Saudia on the A320 or A330. KQ used to fly the route using the E190 and 738 until a while back.

It looks like you duplicated your plane and pasted it to the other side!
