The Sunrise Awakens

We meet again fellow pilots!


Welcome back to yet another one of my picture topics!

Today’s flight from KSMF (Sacramento) to KLAX (Los Angeles) in solo.
Total flight time for today is 1 hour and 3 minutes, using the Air Canada A321.

Hope you like the photos!


We start off with a beautiful sunrise takeoff out of sacremento

As we magically fast forward to noon, we climb out os KSMF like a rocket


A stunning Sunrise shot


A look at the cockpit


Some nice scenery at FL330


We encounter some fog as we step climb towards FL350


Checking in with the pilots if everything was alright (no, I am not overspeeding, its a replay glitch)


We start our approach into KLAX's Runway 7L


On Final


And finally, a greasy landing at KLAX to finish the flight off...

Might wanna fix up the GIF, as it includes the bottom replay bar which doesn’t follow the #screenshots-and-videos criteria.

I don’t think I can crop that out…


You don’t have to link this, I’m fully aware of the rules of this category, but I’m not sure if I can edit out the replay bar.

If you were aware of the rules of this category, you should’ve known not to include the replay bar at the bottom, which is why I linked it. If you knew you couldn’t crop it out, don’t include it.🤷‍♂️

It’s a gif mate, it’s not technicaly considered a photo. I’m sure the mods will spare me one photo/gif.
