A fun community flight and nice to see so many content creators join in in light of the FS expo in Las Vegas! Looking forward to the next world tour leg from Libya to Malta.


Great flight yesterday, that Vegas update looks packed with details. I should definitely check it out during nighttime as well. The scenery along the way was also nice.
