Lockheed's Early Morning Business Commuter Flight

Recommended Posts

Shalom and greetings all my pals,

 

Here is very early morning Lockheed L1011 commuter flight from KATL Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport located seven miles south of the central business district of Atlanta, Georgia to KEWR Newark Liberty International Airport about 15 miles southwest of Midtown Manhattan in New York City

 

Airborne on climb to FL350 after take off from runway 08R and after 180 degree left turn toward east and then northeast. Below the plane is clear view of KATL and well lighted highway running across the screenshot. That highway is called Route 285 also known as Route 407 also known as The Perimeter highway.

Wing view of entire city of Atlanta where you will see below engine the KATL airport and its four well lighted runways!!!!! If you can see greatest and heaviest concentration of city lights in the whole lighted cityscape of Atlanta, that would be business district of Atlanta. Also, if you can look at left side of screenshot, you will see well lighted highway running on south side of the airport. That highway is called Route 285 also known as Route 407 also known as The Perimeter highway. Another highway that runs on east side of the airport across the screenshot from left to right into center of city is highway route number 75 better known as Downtown Connector Highway.

Before starting to execute the PHLBO3 arrival procedure, I had to make at DCA controllers' request one wide circle before starting the procedure due to heavy traffic at KEWR meaning I got during wide circle a nice view of KNGU Naval Station Norfolk in Norfolk, Virginia which is world's largest naval base supporting 75 ships and 134 aircraft alongside 14 piers and 11 aircraft hangars where it averages 275 flights per day or one every six minutes.

Super well done...thanks for the walk down memory lane, both the TriStar and Eastern!! I felt like I was in seat 18B the whole time :))

 

Is that the JF model or the CS version of the TriStar?
