FLIGHT DETAILS

Every year on September 7 (Sete de Setembro), millions of Brazilians celebrate their country’s independence day. :brazil: To mark the occasion, this week our Fly-In Friday group flight will be returning to South America for a flight over some of Brazil’s beautiful beaches and the culturally-rich city of Rio de Janeiro.

Nice! As food serving for this flight, may I suggest Pão de Queijo, Brazilian cheese bread :yum:

Not to take things off topic but I’m somewhat surprised that you guys didn’t set up a flight around New York for today’s event considering Monday is the 11th.

I think because Monday isn’t Friday, and they always fly an event on the exact day if I am correct. More important, the topic is very loaded. Seems very difficult to me what the hosts would say during such a flight.
By the way all airspace was locked that sad day, so historically there were no flights.

Very good points I never thought of. The idea of a relaxing flight that everyone can enjoy rather than worrying that someone is going to have a political agenda and mouth off during the flight making it less fun for everyone else.

Very true, thanks for flipping that switch of my brain once I read your comment it all came flooding in, guess I wasn’t thinking much

I crashed into the water taking a screenshot just before we ended, so no closing photos from me. But great flight otherwise! Thanks again!

An excellent flight, again.

Jeeeeezzzus!
And I don’t mean the statue…

I have the better view…

…but the pilot behind me has the better skill.

Landed on a little island nearby after the event.

Espero sinceramente que a @Jummivana não se esqueça que no Brazil existem criadores de conteúdos que possam representar também sua comunidade Brasilieira

I sincerely hope that @Jummivana doesn’t forget that in Brazil there are content creators who can also represent their Brazilian community

I know I had a video posted and later removed the video showing me doing the flight myself even though I thought I would repost it, sticking with Twitch this time around:
