Memoirs of the State Capital Tour

Post by UAL632 Damien Lunior » January 7th, 2017, 11:02 pm

I have so far visited 14 of the 50 state capitals since 1/2/17. I have some observations from the flight deck :D

1) There are too many state capitals :-P

2) Whoa white out conditions in the Mid Atlantic states today (1/7). Columbia KCAE wasn't visible till 300ft. Gary why didnt you cancel flights today? :lol:

3) Annapolis KANP needs a budget increase, that 2500ft runway was a big...erm small surprise. FuelPlanner has no knowledge of this airport, use KDCA for fuel planning

4) Great scenery on approach to KBOI, if you havent flown there yet I totally recommend it.

5) Leave the medium, heavy aircraft in the hanger till KAJN and PHLN, bring out the small jets and props, could call this the Commuter Pilot Tour on steroids. :D

Whelp on my fifth and final leg of the day from Boise KBOI to St.Paul KMSP, hopefully some more fun weather and unique approaches tomorrow. Stay Warm!

Whelp, in typical Ultimate Traffic 2 style, we are rolling caravan style to the east coast.

UT Traffic at 33000ft, i learned to avoid FL330 and FL340 for that reason. I'M at FL370 KHLN-KALB

After a uneventful trip to KOKC we are now heading to the wild weather west. Looks peaceful now, I expect some weather on the way to KCXP Carson CIty, NV
