Sugar and cacao (SXM-CCS)

Recommended Posts

Had a little time to do a quick flight today SXM-CCS in my trusty Tri-Star. Bringing a little sugar to the good people of Caracas while dropping off some tourists back home. Hoping to pick up a nice little load of cacao beans while we are here. ENJOY!

YOU....light up my life! Taxiing out with a pretty full load of PAX and cargo.

Always love the climb-out and the sharp right after departure here.

Can't you just hear that unique engine sound that she has?

Approaching Caracas, passing over the Gran Roque islands about 100NM North of CCS.

Upwind for the approach to runway 10. Clouds look nice too!

a little long on the landing...anymore and I would have had to go-around. DON'T want to go long on this runway.....

Wonderful Hank! :Applause: I do wish Aerosim had doubled the texture sizes on this superb model.....still must not grumble.

 

You have inspired me to get her out of the hangar. :Love:

Once again, excellent livery! That really must have been a sharp turn in the third image—full spoiler deflection when the gear had not yet been fully retracted?

Has to be, or you end up kissing the mountain. Check out airliners.net and look for the Insel MD-82 reg. PJ-MDC taken by Timo Breidenstien. It will show you what it looks like. I'd post the link but not allowed to.

The angle of that photograph is unique! I didn't realize that SXM is TNCM—I actually know of that departure and the tight turn involved, but just didn't associate it with your screen shot.
