Pushing the CRJX to its limits (GCHL-EFHK)

I thought I’d try another unusual flight in this amazing sim, this time pushing the CRJ-1000 to its absolut range limits.
I flew the Binter CRJ-1000 from El Hierrro, the smallest of the Canary Islands, to the Northern European country of Finnland. The short runway on the cliffs of the volcanic island El Hierro made it super challenging to take off.
The CRJX was loaded at 80% capacity, fuel was filled up to the last drop. The 5-6 hour flight was sure going to be a challenge.

I live on Tenerife! Great photos! Oh, and that island is called El Hierro and not el Hierrro

Yep, landed with ca. 2 mins of fuel left. Thanks to approach @Guxk for slipping me in between the approach patterns of the Helsinki crowded airspace.
