Hi guys
As most of u know that there are many airlines around the world that fly over the poles to get to their destination faster .W'ell i just tried one of the routes and a lot of things came into my view while flying over the north pole.
First of all u lose radio contact over the artic circle i have the approximate location N72 E 87 U don't get the radio contact back until u reach the other side also there is another thing to note that as u fly over the poles the screen begins to fade It becomes proper only after u change the views

We'll here is my flight information
Mumbai(VABB) - Los angeles (KLAX)
Flight time - 17:21
Distance - 7552.6nm
Equipment - Boeing 747-400
Airline - Air India

Hope u would also try out the other routes I will be trying out Singapore - Kennedy
Happy flying
