We’re Going to Cape Verde, Yay! - London Gatwick to Sal

London Gatwick to Cape Verde


Hello everyone again! This time this is something different. Something, new and improved. Yep, you heard me, it’s a different time for my photos. After, I learned how to get the best edit from @Suhas’s tutorial on editing photos. I have to say, that tutorial is amazing! Anyway, this flight was for @Tsumia’s birthday event last Saturday Afternoon. And, I never even heard of Sal Cape Verde before so, it was a really neat flight with the TUI B787-8!


Loading up the cargo and passengers for this 5 and a half hour flight to Sal.

Me, @Tsumia, @IG_InfiniteflightNYC, and @Hassan_Sha taxing to runway 26L by following the Gatwick Expert (and birthday boy) @Tsumia


Rotate and we’re out of here and our way to Sal


Passing by another sunny city of Lisbon, Portugal


Passing by another vacation destination with 1 hour left until our flight. It’s Gran Canaria!


And we’re now about to decend into Sal. All we’ve really seen is water for a little while now.


Now turning base to align with runway 01 at Sal. And, oh look! There’s a beautiful beach down below!


And… touchdown! (Not referring to American Football. Btw Go Bills 😜 We’ve finally made it to Sal!


We’ve vacated off of runway 01 and taxing to the terminal! Welcome to Sal!


Hey Look! It’s @NuggetFornia and @Tsumia sitting at gates as I pull into Gate 5!


That’s all for today!

Awesome photos Mason! I would’ve thought that putting text in the middle of the photos would look bad, but it actually looks really cool, and an interesting Route nonetheless!

Thank you very much @Alfie_Hunt!

Personally I actually flown to Cape Verde already with Thomson 757 (the plane was horrid at the time) but I wanted to fly there again with a much better aircraft of the 757 Rework
