Cross the pond 2019 – 🇨🇦 CYYZ-EHAM 🇳🇱

Join us in the bi-annually cross the pond event from Vatsim.

This time I had Chris as a FO with me and we took the 737 from Toronto to Amsterdam. During the 8hours and 9minutes block time we burned 16.1t of fuel. 

Enjoy a mixture of time lapse and real time videos from cockpit preparation until the night landing with different camera angles including Position reports on the NAT Track.

Midnight Sun Fly In

During last weekend the Midnight Sun Flyin Event took place in Norway, Sweden and Finland

The midnight sun is a natural phenomenon that occurs in the summer months in places north of the Arctic Circle or south of the Antarctic Circle, when the Sun remains visible at the local midnight.

The term “midnight sun” refers to the consecutive 24-hour periods of sunlight experienced north of the Arctic Circle and south of the Antarctic Circle.

I flew from Tromso (Norway) to Kiruna (Sweden). The approach in Kiruna was on runway 03 an RNAV approach.

This video is 90% realtime, only the taxi and cruise are in timelapse.

Sadly the moving map stopped working short after taxi and I didn’t recognized it.

For this flight I jumped back in my homecockpit. So today you will see a video of the flight down to Kiruna.
