last night they tried to steal my Cessna bird… took some measures
Photos of the flight on my favorite route PARO (VQPR) - HACHIJOJIMA (RJTH)
The flight duration is about 10 hours with landing at 4 airports.
Today, as always, a strong wind and rain blew in these places, but soon the weather cleared up and breathtaking beauty opened before us
Arctic region perpetual evening, this is Februari 21, local time 13:30 at CYTL airport in Northern Canada/Greenland
@Renoi71, would you mind greatly to send me a copy of that MS Flight Simulator overlay? Thanks!
PS… Great pic, where is that? And is that a drone pic, or an action one?
@GrayWardan Dude, that thing is shiny! Does it go supersonic?
