Once again.. paradise

I absolutely love Hawaii. It is, without a doubt, paradise on earth Yes.
(and I'm going back there on July 27th for 9 days 😀 😎)

This is Aloha Airlines flight 106 from Kahului, Maui (PHOG) to Hilo, Hawaii (PHTO). Time enroute is about 20 minutes, total flight time about 40 minutes gate-to-gate.

anyway.. on to the screenies (17 this time!!)

1.) At the gate, Kahului

2.) Just after pushback, starting the engines

3.) Takeoff roll, you can see another Aloha 737-200 at the hangar. That's the dormant volcano of Haleakala in the background.

4.) Shortly after takeoff, that's the west side of maui in the foreground, and the Hawaiian island of Molokai in the background

5.) Climbing past Haleakala, elevation 10,300 feet.

6.) Cruising at only 15,000 feet - truly a short "hop" of a flight

7.) Simply beautiful 😀

8.) Again.. 😎

9.) Descending past 5,000 feet. The Hawaiian volcano of Mona Kea dwarfs us. From sea level it is Hawaii's tallest volcano at 13,000 feet. From base, at the bottom of the sea, it's the tallest volcano/mountain on earth.

10.) Looking out at Hilo Intl Airport

11.) On approach

12.) Hilo's runway 8 approach is much like the old Honk Kong Kai Tak approach. The colosal volcano-mountain of Mona Kea blocks most of the would-be approach path, so aircraft must come in at a 90-degree angle and bank into the approach.

13.) On final - from "Chief Captain Pilotguy's perspective" 😉

14.) On final, from quite a different perspective..

15.) Over the number..

16.) One of my smoother landings 😀 ... reverse and spoilers out.

17.) Aloha! Welcome to Hilo 😎

I'll be going on a 7-night cruise around a few of the islands and spending 2 nights on Maui afterwards. I can't wait!! I will have plenty of pictures up here afterwards.

And how's this for a long flight..

We fly out of LaGuardia in NYC down to Atlanta, switch planes and then fly nonstop to Kahului (Maui). 😳

..I'm glad you guys enjoyed the screenies 😀 😎
