Very Very Very Rare Eastern Livery In Desert Action

Postby EAL1017-Aharon Dayan » Thu Jun 16, 2016 1:24 pm

Shalom and greetings all my pals,

Presenting a nice flight with very very very rare Eastern livery from KTUS Tucson International Airport located 8 miles south of downtown Tucson, Arizona to KSAN San Diego International Airport located 3 miles northwest of downtown San Diego, California.

Taxiing to short of runway 29R

Cruising across desert

Look how nice sunrise shines on desert

Image

KSAN is so busy that I had to circle twice above nice city of San Diego

The runway approach to KSAN San Diego international airport is very exciting and dangerous especially the approach from the east is steep, necessitated by terrain which drops from 266 ft (81 m) to sea level in less than one nautical mile. Aircraft normally descend at 318 feet per nautical mile (52.3 m/km) per nautical mile. Due to terrain in San Diego and to avoid hitting the five story high famous garage building in front of runway 27, they must descend at 331 ft/nmi (54.5 m/km), exceeding the FAA standard

Thank you for viewing. Stay tuned for next exciting flight.

Regards,

Aharon
