Toncontin is insane

As most people know, the Approach into Honduras’ famous Tegucigalpa airport is quite ridiculous. I have never flown to this airport before and thought it would be fun today as a new year celebration. I nearly crashed and overran, but by some miracle got the Center line perfect. An absolutely thrilling approach which I will definitely do again.

Flight info: Training server, American A319, Route: KMIA - MHTG
Flight time: 1hr 56mins

Just before making the turn to the runway


Just starting my turn!

At this point I thought I was going to crash

Cockpit view (looks ridiculous 😂)

A nice shot I got of the landing!
