FS9Evo: Crossing the Atlantic - the classic way

Recommended Posts

... with my old DC-6, in four legs from Rio de Janeiro to Algiers. In fact, some more than just the Atlantic.

 

Leg 1: Good morning, Rio!

Getting into the air at the last meters of the runway, and then some nice cruising (following our given route) over Rio.

Yes, I'm trusting them.

Crossing Recife

Approaching Fernando de Noronha in deepest night. Next morning gives nice views -

Leg 2: Actually the Atlantic Ocean

And then water, just water, many hours, until the African coast comes in sight.

And this is our destination: Banjul, showing one third of the Gambian Army's Air Force.

Leg 3: Almost like flying into holidays - to Tenerife

In fact, I paused my flight for spending some holidays at Tenerife in real world. Wish I really could fly there... instead I did some simulated GA flying afterwards.

Leg 4: The last leg, from Tenerife to Algiers.

A snow-capped Teide and a rare visitor at GCTS:

Crossing Laayoune: from 1,001st night.

And finally Algiers. The tower building may have seen DC-6s in active service.

Thanks for watching!

Best regards,
