Speedyyy delivery! It’s a 7000 mile long Snickers

Hey everyone!

So around two weeks or so ago, I noticed @Speedyyy had been pretty inactive in a PM we are in. One day he responded saying that the reason he was gone was because he went through scoliosis spine surgery. This is a very painful and tough experience that no one should have to go through and I felt something bigger than a sorry needed to be done.

So I consulted the community wanting to draw something in the sky, and @Pingu had the brilliant idea of the snickers logo since he loves snickers. I didn’t know how to make a custom fpl like that but I found a helpful tutorial and @AdamCallow’s KML sheet, so in around 2 hours it was done. I would depart KCVS, a afb just off the Texas border, and fly 7400 miles and more than 16 hours and end up in Huntsville Alabama.

Unfortunately, my app did crash, on the last letter too. But I’ll share what I have regardless! I hope you guys enjoy this and I hope @Speedyyy enjoys this, we have kept this a secret from him. This was supposed to be done earlier but school hit me hard. So on my birthday this past Sunday I decided to do something kind for someone else. Enjoy!

Flight details

Route: KCVS-refuel in small airport in Georgia, don’t remember name-app crash
Flight time: about 15 hours then app crashed.
Aircraft: IF 737BBJ

Banking out of KCVS early in the morning 🌅

I had a moonshot but the replay somehow cropped the moon out so fast forward to @ItsBlitz spotting us landing at our small refueling field

Also mysterious refueling airport but this time an @AndrewWu type beat

Departing once more

And now some LiveFlight shots so you can really see the progress!



👋 Stay safe 👋

Anyway, just giving you a hard time @Pingu honest mistake. Glad someone did this, sounds like he’s had a rough time from what I’ve heard in the sss so I think this was a great idea. Hope you get good soon @Speedyyy!

That’s good to know. I take it it’s a long process, so hopefully it keeps going well. Is this the sort of thing where the surgery cures it for lack of a better way to say it or do you have to keep doing more stuff?

the surgery took care of the problem and i don’t need any other procedures done!
