The Aerosoft/iFly Pacific Circle - Part 1

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Following on from my previous post (here), I'm about to find another A340 to fly to Munich but I've been distracted by new shiny things...

Aerosoft just released the A320/321 and iFly the HD update to their P3Dv4 737NG.

I did a quick KSFO PHNL PANC KSEA KSFO circuit, all with Alaska Airlines and their new (then) aquisition of Virgin America.

First up, Virgin America (still running 'their' flights at this point) A320 evening flight to PHNL.

Old KSFO jetways not working, using buses and steps to board the aircraft.

Shortly after take off flying past some bridge.
uc?id=1ObWos5USeK48TQcbZ4fHIC6Tc3a6e5QM

Climbing out over the Pacific as the sun sets.
uc?id=13WP2_zEztMBx1z6Xtdnr8dyfQwkZ9mKR

A lot of darkness and water later... short final to 4R.
uc?id=12Kng3_zYFwr1LAfEhxGUP6V0xDeS8AD4

Slightly erratic lighting but parked at the gate.
uc?id=1wc6HVi87oyCvcDWCyoDRrnyqe9bgo_cy

Next up, Alaska 737-800 to PANC, ASA871, another night flight over the Pacific.

Albino Atlas Air 747 departing as we board.

Shortly after take off looking at Waikiki
uc?id=16F4MjV_usRM9SFP4otP8hSMokzKeaXOj

Saw an old shed plying it's trade, couldn't resist a quick snap, it's as photogenic as the day it was conceived (i.e. not at all).
uc?id=1a6JlhHYG_2GLpMAmFcw8OeTvayUqKKBF

Aeroplane over water at night with lights on.
uc?id=1hesByVZigRMv7T-PUU6swklH2r1gAwCW

A few hours later (I was hoping there would be some light) we're approaching Anchorage.
uc?id=1SHsfOJF84NOxkm6AX0hrdZEMtrNicP__

Parked up and we're all still tired...
uc?id=1hCNQIZOXcRXwUGw9VMUyCa8cUfYMBdev

I was hoping to get all 4 flights in one post but I couldn't choose so it's spilt into 2. Here's the next, an Alaska B737-900 flight down to KSEA. It's ASA82, the early morning (red eye? or are they in the evening/night?) flight, today in the Disney themed paint.
uc?id=1nI4-mHMMm0ukmAcaZnwfTl8VZYQ1WW5c

Local traffic (Grant Aviation) avoiding the hills and clouds endemic in Alaska.
uc?id=1MqzndCl0ous0I0B7cJ5x8Kf9wdKTvgZd

Big cargo base, PANC, plenty of evidence for that.
uc?id=1KgqYiNRxZ1E5vI0yMOvbKHbyLZYOlQOT

Even the super big LCF jumbo is here.
uc?id=14rWjPe6rXr_2sb2Rd6kPbwLZ4u5ydwZA

And the normal one.
uc?id=1BAUvoMRYz7lspUTPCe5U32TmramPvti6

Looking back after take off and there's another LCF
uc?id=1r1cK5eUE3xu1vM3qASgzS5gEnajm1YCT

Definitely Alaska
uc?id=1cqm4Tte7mXLamBw54vaRDBiFh5spX3Vp

Clearing up as we make our way south.
uc?id=1VsehJsUA7KmsZBAn2jlbyMSX9NmS2HJ9

As we approach Seattle though, clouds and mountains return.
uc?id=1tICbkwmkM2EY9w-ITFUlSRXFVLqDUbMc

See here for the rest of this flight and a SanFran Giants A321 down to, well, SanFran.
