Few screenshots from my recent flights. One is the BA Landor schemed B747-8i, the other is Cathay Pacific silver-bullet B747-400F landing in Melbourne.

Wow, just half the runway? I know there's a big difference between flying empty and fully loaded, and it wouldn't need to fly long to refuel at for instance Copenhagen or Billund but that was still amazing, thanks for testing it

Beautiful classic livery, the Landor is one of my favourites!

I'm flying HK Kai-tak to Incheon:

VHHH RWY13 ELATO1A KADLO L1 SALMI B576 OLMEN RKSI

Typical MD-11 climb performance, very steep, with Victoria Harbour in the background, and the cluttered Kai-Tak also visible with its infamous Runway 13:



Flying from Tathong Point to waypoint W, you can see the plane is holding at 7000ft and 250kts on this SID:


Predicted to get to 36,000ft on this flight.

Flying B747-400 VH-OJD on QF582, Perth to Sydney:

DCT BROOK H18 BURGU Y135 YORKE M084F390 J15 AD H247 CULIN Y59 SY

I've loaded the plane with 55T of fuel, reckons I'll get there with 18T, which is still more than the 15T reserve I've allowed for. Cost index 120, for M0.858 cruise speed, which should get me there fast.

Expecting big tail-winds too, so that should speed things up. Currently climbing to FL400, maximum altitude at the moment the FMC reckons is FL422.

Canberra to Sydney, with a Cathay Pacific Cargo B747-8i B-LJA, Hong Kong Trader.

Flew YSCB CULIN7/RWY35 CULIN Y59 RIVET RIVET9/RWY16R YSSY.

On descent now - did reach 27,000ft at a speed of M0.747!

And on descent into Sydney, past BOOGI waypoint, it's pouring with rain.... Reflects our weather at the moment actually.

I've been doing a world tour with Concorde:

Denpasar-Sydney
Sydney-Noumea
Noumea-Honolulu
Honolulu-Anchorage
Anchorage-Thule (Greenland)

From there, I want to get to somewhere in Southern Europe if I can, because I want to do a hop all the way to Dubai - which is a long way. My method might be to go to Lisbon, Portugal, or perhaps I can get to Gibraltar.

I want to get back to Denpasar from the Middle East, but I don't think there is enough range, so I'll need to do a stop somewhere in Asia, maybe Singapore.

Now going Thule Air Force Base to Toulouse, Blagnac in a long, 2825Nm flight. I will pass nearby Keflavik, but mostly it's over ocean.

Next leg of the flight is Toulouse-Dubai, it's a long flight of over 3000Nm, going along the Mediterranean Sea, below Cyprus and across an uninhabitated section of Northern Lebanon, before going down across Jordan and using most of the old Concorde route into Bahrain going near places like Hafr-al-Batin, Turaif, etc.

But instead of going down towards Bahrain, I head north of Riyadh to Alvon waypoint and then down to Dubai.

I did Juneau (Alaska) to Olympia (Washington) to Salem (Oregon) to Sacramento (California) to Carson City (Nevada) in the Carenado Mooney 201 this afternoon. Planning on flying to all the continental US capitals - about 9300nm / 17200km!
