Rio to Dubai

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

This past weekend I decided it was time to do another long haul flight, so I took chose my trusty old Emirates 77L and chose Galeão International Airport over in Rio de Janeiro as my departure point. Our destination for the day was of course the home of Emirates, Dubai. I flew the flight in real time using the same equipment and flight number Emirates uses on the real world sector and I tried to depart at around the same time the actual flight does (in sim). Unfortunately, as the flight leaves Rio late at 2:06am and arrives in Dubai at 11:05pm, a fair few screenshots were taken at night so I apologize in advance for that.Total flying time was around 13 hours and 45 minutes. Weather was provided along the way by ActiveSky and as always, all my shots are unedited.

What traffic do you use?

Nice shots!


I use a mix of World of AI and traffic that I tailor made myself over the years. :smile:
