FS2004: Silver Bullet Visits Anchorage

Post by Ali Hasan »

Recently, I had the pleasure of travelling on Cathay Pacific Cargo's Boeing 747-400F from Hong Kong to Anchorage, Alaska - USA. Below are the flight details and a few screenshots:

Route: HKG-ANC
Flight: CX-0084
Aircraft: 747-400F (B-HUK)
Sch dep time: 15:25
Sch arr time: 08:55 (+1)
Flight duration: 09:30
Act dep time: 15:23
Act arr time: 09:10 (+1)
Day: Sunday, October 28, 2007

1. CX-84 almost ready for departure.

2. Cargo loaded and the doors ready to be closed.
Image

3. While we were getting ready for push back, a Virgin A340-600 touched down on RWY 7L.
Image

4. A Cathay A330-300 takes off while a Continental 777-200ER is seconds away from touch down.
Image

5. Just before rotation I caught this Qatar A340-600 painted in the new livery.
Image

6. Sunset over China.

Soon after sunset, I had some dinner and went to sleep. I was woken up by one of the crew members (as I asked them to) about 90 minutes before landing. It was still dark outside so I had to wait another 45 minutes before I could take the following shots:

7. Sunrise over Alaska, USA as seen from the cockpit.

8. Making a right-turn with the Alaska Range in the background.
Image

9. Flaps extended. About 20 nautical miles away from the airport.
Image

10. As soon as we evacuated RWY 32 we were greeted with a number of FedEx MD-11Fs.
Image

11. Ted Stevens Anchorage International Airport's tower in the background with two Alaska B737s and a Cathay A340-300 in the foreground.
Image

12. Took this last shot quickly as I disembarked the plane. The weather outside was close to freezing that day.

I hope you enjoyed viewing these shots. Any kind of feedback will be much appreciated. :)

I am not able to see a single screenshot therefore managed to check on picasoweb gallery link. Thank you for sharing!

Do you fly for any specific VA or taking open/random flights?

Yeah, I'm not quite sure why it's doing that. Anyways, I've uploaded the screenshots on another website so it should work fine now. Thanks for viewing.
