Trijet Thursday

Hi


I AM AWARE THAT IT’S NOT THURSDAY, THAT’S JUST HOW BAD I AM WITH TITLES 😥


A couple of days ago I flew a cargo flight, which is a rare occurrence for me. Usually I fly commercial flights, but I had to fly this for something I’m doing 👀. I used the FedEx MD-11F, though I would have preferred to use the DC-10F. Well, I flew between 2 FedEx hubs, Oakland, California, and Memphis, Tennessee. It was a fun flight, though I didn’t really see any opportunities for shots of the scenery, because my FPL took the aircraft over some of the blandest places in the USA. I also wasn’t too happy with the outcome of these photos :I
Oh well, life goes on. Enjoy the photos!


NOT the details

Aircraft: MD-11F
Route: KOAK - KMEM

Cargo Onboard

@Butter_Boi’s DC-3 and NASCAR mods for BeamNG

I guess nobody wanted me to bring them stuff 🥲


Here’s our aircraft getting the DC-3 in the upper cargo hold.

Leaving the Golden Gate behind


The majestic Lake Tahoe 🥰🥰🥰


Fast forward, and we’re approaching Memphis


On final for 36C


Slowing down with one of my favorite angles


Waiting for a runway exit to appear


Crossing a runway, I have no idea which one


Trying to get the DC-3 out of the aircraft. It wasn’t easy, so I expect a hefty tip @Butter_Boi


Well, that’s all, I hope you liked the photos! Let me know if you have a favorite!


Bye

Also, here’s your coconuts! I brought them into the cockpit with me to make sure they would be safe 🥥🥥🥥

That’s pretty quick considered the size of the dc-3 and the size of the MD-11… Well done!..


Thank you, when you’re in the middle of winter, coconuts are a great thing to have if you need a taste of summer.

Very nice 👍🏽‼️

Ugh, fine.

Thanks for delivering my cargo though, it’s in mint condition!

Awesome photos by the way!

Scam!

It should be a heavy weight flight!!

Thank you for the compliment and the tip, I appreciate it!
