To The Windy City

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone!

 

I've been meaning to share some pictures of my latest flight from Dubai to Chicago. I'm a huge commercial aviation nut and long haul to ultra long haul flights are my forte. I'm in love with the 77W and find it to be one of the best looking aircraft out there. I feel like the Emirates livery looks great on it in particular. As always, the flight was flown in real time following the actual schedule and took just over 15 hours. 

 

A brief list of all my addons:

 

SkySpirit 77W painted by Abdullah Rahman

ActiveSky Evolution for the weather

FlyTampa Dubai 

FSDT Chicago O'Hare

Shockwave 3D Lights

Aerosoft AES 2.43a

REX Extreme Redux

FSRealTime for time sync

AISmooth for AI separation

 

Apologies in advance if I've forgotten anything! As always, all screenshots are unedited other than resizing. 

 

Overview of DXB this morning. Fairly full with the dominant carrier being EK.

Parked at the gate in Dubai as EK235. A6-EGO has the honor of doing the flight today. Sadly, the 1000th 777 titles have long since been removed from this airframe in real life...
