YMML-NZWN In the NEW A359!

What a beautiful aircraft!

Hi again everyone! Today, with the release of the A359 to IF, I decided to fly a new Singapore Airlines route: YMML (Melbourne Int’l) to NZWN (Wellington Int’l). This route takes the A350 right over my house so I decided to give it a go!

FPL as always was made with Simbrief and FPLtoIF, and this flight was done on the Expert Server.

Enough babbling, let’s look at some photos!

^ Filing the flight plan and loading the cargo at the gate!

^ Rotating out of Melbourne on Runway 16

^ Gear up!

^ Just off the left wingtip is my house! Passing through FL 280 on the decent

^ Turning base for Runway 16 (yes, also 16) in Wellington

^ On final

^ Smoooth landing making use of that fabulous gear tilt

^ Parked at the gate for shutdown and unloading!

Thanks for taking a look at these, and thanks to the devs for an AMAZING update!

Regards,
Your friendly neighborhood New Zealander, Jim

I think I saw you logging out at the end of your flight. I spawned in an A350

I didn’t see any other Singapope a350s enroute to Wellington, so it probably was me 😃
