Do it while you can, I guess. Glaciers might not be around in a couple of updates!

I think I’ve done the exact glacier in the game Aerofly. I don’t do it in If sadly because if you do the taxi speed warning goes off on live

If you look closely you will see a white line coming through the snowy mountains. That should be where he landed.

Thank you I will land there once I’ve finished the flight I’m doing now

Just be aware that you will of course get a taxi speed warning so you need to touch down with the most minimum speed and then break as soon as possible to reduce your speed below 35 knots before you get a violation

Maybe they are also playing IF and saw me landing there because I already landed there on Sunday , 2 days before the article got published ;)
