Most interesting airport...

Recommended Posts

What do you guys think is the most interesting airport in the U.S.A. to fly the 744 out/in of?Some parameters to consider:visual beautychallenging approaches/departuresunique characteristcs (i.e., high altitude, extremely hot/cold, dry/wet.Or anything else to consider. The airfield doesn't have to be for 744 operations only. But, would be curious to know, since I will start to fly more in U.S. airspace (sim-wise, anyway)Regards,Tomas

Good idea for a thread Tomas!It's not in the USA, but I always enjoy MMMX (Mexico City), in particular at night. The city surrounds the airport and there's high ground all around. If you have some good night-time city textures the effect is stunning. The field elevation is high too so your actual groundspeed on departure and arrival is a bit higher than when at sea level, lucky the runway is extra long.Coming into KSFO is always a treat too. If you like night-flying then approaching from the south over San Jose is a real buzz.

Try UHPP with real weather. coming in to land on one of the runways, you almost always get hit by wind shear. Nice quiet corner of the world.Goran

> Mark, I am looking fwd to the MMMX flight.You'll enjoy it I'm sure. But if you do come in at night watch those hills on the approach!!! I suggest you get an approach chart for the ILS to make sure you stay out of the high ground.
