Up the Amazon river - a TBM trip - The end!

Hi all,
I decided to fly along the Amazon river, from Belem to the peruvian summits. I’ll do it in short flights of about an hour each and will post some pics here along the way. All flights on expert server

Let us start with leg 1 - SBBE - SBMQ

Hi! It is called infinite tracker (free for Android)

Thank you,.it is a nice landscape. I look forward to the Andes with an airfield at 10900ft!
I’ll most likely glide down to Lima at the end!

A good one there, 10 points!

@Tep_NEMO The photos don’t display Infinite Tracker. Although it is a good app for tracking aircraft for Android, the ones shown in the picture is LiveFlight, which works on PC and IOS. (It is on Android as a website, but super laggy)

Also the flight planner best for IF is FPLtoIF.com

I thoroughly enjoyed these flights, following an amazing river. Sorry it took so much server space!
