The NHL season is coming down to the wire, and the West division couldn’t be tighter, with only 5 points separating 1st and 3rd place. This week the Colorado Avalanche travelled to St. Louis to take on one of their biggest rivals, the St. Louis Blues! This is their flight!

Waiting to taxi out for departure as another BBJ taxis out of the FBO ramp for departure to JFK (Piloted by @IF.Mike)
DL8948 cleared for takeoff on Runway 8, saying goodbye to the mountains for the next week and a half.
Cruising over the vast, empty plains of the Midwest.
Passing by Kansas City at FL350.
Finally beginning our descent over the rolling hills of Central Missouri.
Banking into runway 12R at KCPS with Downtown St. Louis just off our left wing. How cool would this approach be with 3D city buildings??
Parked at the FBO, loading up the busses, and heading off to the arena for afternoon skate!
