Well Jordan Greene and I thought it would be fun to fly around the world. What could possibly go wrong with that?

Well nothing so far, other than we have changed the route we are flying about 7 times.

So I present for your consideration, legs 1 and 2 of our world tour.

Leg 1. Denver to London.

Leg 2. London to Dubai.

I thought it would be fun to fly an A380 so I threw a merge together. The results were acceptable until approach where I couldn't fly below 155 kts without AFLOOR protection kicking in. That was fun.

Holy rate of climb batman!

Descent into DXB.

And that's all I got for that flight. My Dubai scenery wasn't cooperating so any screens I would have taken there would have been bad.

Hope you enjoy these shots. Plenty more to come, I wish I could tell you what the rest of our flights would be, but our planning has been spastic at best. Perth is next though. We are enroute at the moment.

Part 3. Dubai to Perth.

Now I'm not really sure where the idea to go to Perth came from as it wasn't in our original planning. Anyways, good flight. Had Mumbai control give us enroute ATC for about 2 hours. That was interesting. Approach was good, I encountered some icing, kept things interesting. My A345 merge (Overland + Wilco A346 Panel) performed very well, look forward to flying that again some time soon.

Pushing out at DXB. Very long pushback.

So my merge also destroyed the VC, so instead of changing all the gauges to work right and make it look normal... I just decided to make the VC camera view point look like this... I think it looks cool.

Jordan in his B77L is up and away.

Now we are airborne. This is a ridiculously good looking aircraft, I must thank Tom Collins for this beautiful paint.
Posted Image
Wasn't much worth seeing during the cruise so here is the approach.

Posted Image
Vacated to the right, took the strait route in to the international gates. Welcome to Perth!

So what is next? Probably going to fly over to SYD. You will find out soon enough!
