Shiny Pencil Saturday

Hellllooooo people! So I haven’t posted since January 15, and I’m sorry about that, I know literally nobody cares that I haven’t posted (as they shouldn’t) so I’m more sorry to myself for being the lazy procrastinator that I am. Anyways, I’ve been doing a lot of flying so I realized I should have enough photos to make a compilation, and I definitely do, I have enough for a few more posts too. Recently my photos haven’t been as good so hopefully these are better!

Which is true about San Diego International Airport (In Picture 4)?

  • It is the busiest single runway airport in the world
  • Compass air operated the longest E175 route, from San Diego to Cancun before their closing in 2020
  • San Diego to San Francisco was the 3rd busiest domestic route in 2020

@RTG113 we don’t talk about that

Thank you @MJP_27 !

@USA_ATC thank you! I’m happy you like them

@CaptainAli_yt I’m not sure if there’s a topic, I just looked up an approach chart and followed it, and o don’t think that was you. I flew that route back in early January

@Flying_Pencil every day is pencil day but not shiny pencil day 😂

@IF_International it does! I still like the new livery tho


Ah ok I flew in Jan as well but I think near the end who knows???

Nice photos! It isn’t really “Hawaiian” dirt, more so Hawaii dirt. 🤙

It’s almost impossible to land a 717 smoothly.

@CaptainAli_yt maybe it was you then, nobody knows 😂
@Rylan_S1 thanks! i think either would work
@IF_International it is impossible lol and the 787 doesn’t have tilt, it’s just the angle

Amazing pictures mate ! 🛫
