Ah, the package holiday!

Recommended Posts

Taking a morning flight from Manchester EGCC to Tenerife (South) GCTS.

 

Just a short while after top of climb

About an hour to go..

Anyone spot an island? It should be right on the nose! There's a reasonably large hill nearby somewhere..

She'll be flying round the mountain when she comes..

All dirtied up and ready for the tarmac..

Why did Ground allocate us this gate? I hope the 737 doesn't want to move. Someone else can jolly well shift our 767! Some of the passengers are getting rowdy already (don't think the drinks trolley has any stock left). Hope they're not too drunk and disorderly and get out of the airport ok. Honestly, some days I definitely think that cargo runs are far better; palletised cargo does not get arsey, unlike the self-loading kind ;)

Well, that's just payback for Ground blocking in the 737: The jetway's broken! Anyway, the crew and I are off for a well-earned break... & a nice cup of tea! (Not sure if I'm off-duty long enough to enjoy a beer).

Skyspirit 767-300

Freeware Canary Island photoreal scenery (complete with disappearing airport buildings!) Hence the rooftop shot of the 767 with air stairs etc.

 

Thanks for looking.

Thanks - it's a freeware one by Philippe WALLAERT. I just need to try and fudge a VC into the 767, but I'm not sure if it can be done.

enjoy a beer

 

You should do exactly so. Your post brings nice rememberance of my Tenerife stay in February - regarding beer, a Dorada is a good choice. :drinks:

The docking scene would be better if the buildings didn't disappear at certain viewing angles when you're taxying in :)
