Shalom and greetings all my pals,

Presenting a nice Royal New Zealand Air Force Boeing 757-200M flight from NZTG Tauranga Airport located adjacent to Tauranga Harbour in the suburb of Mount Maunganui about 2 miles northeast of city of Tauranga to NZCH Christchurch International Airport located 7.5 milles to the northwest of the city centre of Christchurch

I was so busy taking screenshots and admiring view of Tauranga airport and city that I accidentally ran out of runway where you can see tire skid marks of embarrassing backtracking. This is first time in 10 years of FSX flight simming that I see tires leaving skid marks on grass!!!!!
