We’ve all flown the classic LAX-SFO Route many times and with everyone doing it this week, I decided to try something a little different. I flew Ontario, California to Oakland (ONT-OAK) in a FedEx DC-10F which is an aircraft they actually fly on this route. I had never flown the DC-10 before so it was fun to fly, but it is tough to land in my opinion. Flight time was 46 min in Expert
Beautiful pics! That’s a little close to the terrain, though :v
I made sure I kept my distance but I needed to stay close to the mountain for a straighter Approach into Oakland without interfering with SFO traffic
KONT is a very nice little airport. It’s almost all cargo and I love watching the planes arrive there from the 15 freeway
Nice pics! Was there too much SFO traffic to make your approach hard though?
There wasn’t very much traffic but there were a few planes coming in on approach and I just didn’t want to get in their way
Terrain, Terrain, PULL UP!
