Global Flight - The Log Book


#1322

what is going on In the first picture?!


#1323

I did some landings in the Canary Islands before I decided to continue towards The Hague. However, midflight I decided to divert to Madrid because my iPad was getting a bit to hot.


#1324

Just saw this. 😴👎 Sorry to hear.


#1325

Attempt 2. A nice morning departure from the Marietta Lockheed plant to deliver a new C-130 to the Indian Air Force.


#1326

Bad lighting effects


#1327

Just landed and handed over the keys. First leg from Marietta to Svalbard took 8 hours 27 minutes and the second leg from Svalbard to Hindon AFB (No. 77 Squadron home) took 8 hours 24 minutes.

As can be customary with deliveries, I made two low approaches for the brass.

Finally sitting on the ramp prepped for inspection.


#1328

#1329

Currently descending into KSAT from KDFW at 7,000 feet going 220 knots. I am 33 km from the airport.

#1331

You wot? Mate Lima is the capital of Peru. I’m so triggered lol.


#1332

So, it has been a very busy January for me. For that reason, I haven’t done as many flights as I would have liked. I still managed to do quite a few, so here they are.

Singapore (WSSS) - Bangkok (VTBS)

A 1 hour and 45 minute flight on the DC-10, with a beautiful descent into Thailand. I recommend it.


Vienna (LOWW) - Addis Ababa (HAAB)

An almost 6 hour flight with fantastic terrain and a lovely aircraft. I oblige anyone who hasn’t flown in Ethiopia yet to do it. It is simply stunning.


Jeddah (OEJN) - Istanbul (LTBA)

3 and a half hours of very varied terrain. From flat desert, to sea, to mountainous and then the descent. Central Turkey was by far the best one, and I suggest you fly there if you haven’t yet.


Frankfurt (EDDF) - Moscow (UUEE)

2 hour and 20 minutes on the wonderful 748, spanning a variety of landscape, with a nice sunrise halfway through. Landing at SVO is pretty chill, especially with the wonderful help of ATC.


Kaliningrad (UMKK) - Moscow (UUEE)

No more than 2 hours long, this flight is a very nice route from the former German exclave to the capital city. I witnessed a beautiful moon on my way out and wonderful ATC work in Moscow.


Bangkok (VTBS) - Hong Kong (VHHH)

At a little over two hours long, this route is perfect for a short flight to HGK on the 777. Scenery is great in that part of the world.


Seoul (RKSI) - Taipei (RCTP)

Just under 2:20 flight. I liked this route because of the wonderful combination of huge international airports, great scenery and a wonderful experience in the expert server. The west coast of South Korea is just not worth missing.


Cincinnati (KCVG) - Atlanta (KATL)

A 60 minute hop to Delta’s super hub for FNF. Very short, great for these circumstances.


Miami (KMIA) - New York (KJFK)

A flight I’ve wanted to do for many months now. When I found out National operated these flights in real life on the DC-10, I didn’t waste a minute thinking about it. Approaching JFK on a busy day is always huge fun, and the strong gusts made it quite special.


Moscow (UUEE) - New York (KJFK)

Nine hours on the transatlantic overnighter. Unfortunately JFK was empty when I arrived, but again, strong winds kept me concentrated after a good flight.


Seattle (KSEA) - Honolulu (PHNL)

Longest flight on a single aisle to date for me. The approach to Hawaii is something I will have to do again. Great flight, fantastic scenery on a great plane. 10/10 recommended.


Cagliari (LIEE) - Innsbruck (LOWI)

On FDS flying day, I decided to finally fly to Innsbruck. To my surprise, the best part of the flight was actually the departure from Cagliari. It is an absolutely stunning departure with mountains and the sea right next to each other. I absolutely recommend it.


Athens (LGAV) - Split (LDSP)

Something like 1 hour long, my first flight on the A318 in a long while. The departure from Athens was fantastic, with many islands, mountains and coasts to stare at during climb. The descent into the Croatian coast was also very nice, and the airport in Split is an interesting one.


Santiago (SCEL) - Auckland (NZAA)

My longest flight yet, one that I had thought about doing since the day Global was announced in development. It may seem like a boring flight, since it’s pretty much all ocean, but still one I recommend.


Melbourne (YMML) - Brisbane (YBBN)

I decided to take the 767 out for a flight on a domestic flight. The views in southeastern Aurtralia are really underrated. I love them, and will continue to enjoy them.


Los Angeles (KLAX) - Anchorage (PANC)

Five hours on the always enjoyable MD-11F. The departure was great, as is common at LAX. The approach not so much, due to the lack of traffic and flat terrain, but still a flight I wanted to do and in the end I enjoyed.


So there’s the first four weeks of 2018. I hope you had a great start of the year, I did, and let’s hope for a 2018 full of great activity in Infinite Flight!


#1333

Just departed LSZH in an Swiss A330-300 bound for BOS for some clam chowda!!! Beautiful view of the Swiss Alps on departure. Swiss 65 Heavy, out…


#1334

Accomplished my longest flight to date so far by the skin of my teeth. Reunion Island to Phoenix, AZ. The flight took 21 hours and 40 minutes from takeoff to touchdown. 5 hours in I didn’t think I was going to make it but with the help of fellow community members and their knowledge of different apps I could use, I was able to modify my flight plan based on current real time winds aloft info. Instead of doing the great circle route, I turned left at Barcelona towards The Azores and then to Bermuda. Once there, and with the help of the wind app, I turned north toward Chicago and then back south direct Gallup for the arrival into Phoenix. I had only 99 lbs of fuel on short final and actually all 4 engines died while in reverse. If your eyes can make it out, the fuel remaining and that info is along the bottom of the pics. Never in a million years can I do that again. Again, a big thanks to the community for the help.
