Recommended Posts

It's rather cloudy in Athens, but we'll soon leave that behind and below.

Good, initial rate of climb - only 50 tons on board.

A not inconsiderable tailwind component tonight.

Lined up for a visual on RWY30R at OMDB. Well, the tower said visual, but they didn't specifically say NOT to have the ILS dialled in... :)

Touchdown. I do believe I nailed that big girl right on the centreline for once! :cool:

Awesome pictures!

Really menacing clouds, Mark, on takeoff! Glad you made it safe and sound, with your valuable cargo.

I'll have to take your word for it. I see only the hangar in the background 😎

I do love a full flight post especially with a three-holer! 😍

A couple of points.:

Landing lights on climb out but not on takeoff? 

If FSATC offer you a visual, decline and ask for an ILS approach. 😉

....OOPSIE..checklist?what checklist??.... I'm not a real pilot..oh..those buttons!! :nangis::blush: I need a safe place, the internet is bullying me! 

Actually, I possibly saved the company about $0.0000000163 in extending the life of the landing light bulbs...

Ahem... thank you gents for your kind words, eagle-eyes and constructive criticism.

Ah, well you need to remove the sunglasses from your smiley and perhaps click on the pic to enlarge it to full size etc. :biggrin:

P_7878. Not sure how valuable the cargo was. It tallied with the manifest (I think), there were no livestock or animals.... & I'm just the driver.:cool:
