OK, now let´s go down the coast

Recommended Posts

Getting ready for Virgin Australias flight 1709 from Cairns to Brisbane.



Just out of runway 15 there is Cairns hockey center. Would be great to play there...





The SID gives passengers on the left a chance to see the airport.



This fantastic city view is hard to get from the cabin. Sometimes we simmers are in a better position...



Passengers on the right can have a view of the Atherton tablelands and the valleys.



Changing sides again to spot the reef.





Do not underestimate the distances in Queensland. The flight takes nearly 2 hours. The top of descent is just next to Hervey Bay, which could be seen in the distance here.



Descending into Brisbane.



On the STAR around the city...



... and on final into the 01. I am sure Jack would feel a strong gravity of the bridge on the right.



Deboarding at the Virgin AU terminal. Good work of the combination UT live and Pro-ATC/X.

Fantastic Gerold!  I have flown under that one, yes, but not in a big jet like this.  Wonderful narration!

Many thanks, Jack. Indeed it might be a challenge to switch off the autopilot after establishing on the glide path and then manually detour under the bridge... ;D
