My Round the World Trip!..........

Pulp1 Guest

I am currently embarking on an around the World trip from my home town in Newcastle, England, UK, (EGNT) and back again in 'real time' and trying to do it in one and a half hour hops (max) where possible, (great big oceans permitting Laughing ! ) taking in as many great cities as I can.

Thus far my Itinarary has been as follows:

1. Newcastle - London (Heathrow)
2. London (Heathrow) - Paris (De Gaulle)
3. Paris (De Gaulle) - Madrid (Barajas)
4. Madrid (Barajas) - Lisbon
5. Lisbon - The Azores (Lajes)
6. The Azores (Lajes) - Bermuda (INTL)
7. Bermuda (INTL) - New York (JFK)
8. New York (JFK) - Washington (Dulles)
9. Washington (Dulles) - Toronto (City Centre)

Anyway, for those interested here are a few pics from my most recent leg of the trip:

10. Toronto (City Centre) - Chicago (O'Hare)

A tiny little runway, and I just scrape off the ground at minimum speed before the end of the runway and certain watery death!

Man I love Toronto, hope to visit again soon (for real this time!) Cool

See that tiny runway!

A little detour over the Motor City!

Beautifull Lake Michigan......

Welcome to the 'windy city'.....where erm...theres no wind today as I set the weather to calm! Laughing

On approach to O'Hare ILS 32R....man this airport is HUGE!

Touchdown! not the greatest while fretting over a screenshot but done the job!

Finally, we've made it, The British and my Canadian friends invade America!

I live near London, and I've done a few round the world trips ib both directions all in real time. Really makes it more worthwile imo. Great fun flying somewhere different from time to time too.

I loved landing at Syndey Kingsford Smith, I've always wanted to get there in real life!

Currently I tend to cross the pond to KJFK and back when I have a few hours free. Cool

Yeah I find real time is much more rewarding, thats why I am trying to keep my flights short so as to not bring on boredom.

The longest flight thus far on this trip was from The Azores to Bermuda, took me about 4 hours!.......it can drag a bit!, luckily I can browse the web and listen to some music whislt the autopilot does the donkey work! Smile

10. Chicago (O'Hare) - Kansas City (Intl)

Ready to go, my wallet is extremely light after a weekend in Vegas! Crying or Very sad

VERY nice Pulp1!!! Its so amazing how you can see places several times and then someone captures it in great lighting. I'm talking LA in your shots. Maybe I've not landed there in the dark.

I also like the climbing out shot at Toronto's City Centre airport. Thats where I learned to fly helicopters for the first time (sim only).

Thanks for sharing!

14. Los Angeles (LAX) - San Francisco (Intl)
A pretty un-eventfull flight.

15. San Francisco (Intl) - Honolulu (Intl)

On a rainy overcast night in San Fran (real world weather), I head out into the wilds of the Pacific Ocean and say goodbye to the US of A by doing the customary flight under the Golden Gate Bridge! Cool

After a four and a half hour (real time flight) I finally touchdown in Honolulu!

Pulp1 Guest

16. Honolulu (Intl) - Wake Island (AAF)

Leaving beautiful Honolulu.

Cruising over the Pacific.

Touching down at Wake Island, a tiny spec in the Ocean.

Bye Bye, South Korea, keep a close eye on whats going on up North..

By the time I reached the Chinese coast it was getting foggy but by the time I swung into Shanghai visibility was non-existant!! Shocked what a scary landing I could only see the runway at about 1nm.

20. Shanghai (Pudong) - Hong Kong (Intl)

On approach to Hong Kong 7L, I had a funny feeling about this landing....

JEEZ! Shocked At about 400 ft I do a double take.... and YES that is an Airbus sitting right on my runway ready to take off!!!...so I do my best to land over his head!

This is the most amazing landing Ive ever had, the Airbus nearly runs straight into the back of me on takeoff!! Fear

Thankfully I've made it and the passengers are blissfully unaware of how close they came to death.... Surprised

Lovely shots and great AI at the airport, trying to figure out the aircraft though, is it a 7e7? Looks like a 767 but not quite if you know what i mean?
