COVID-19 Relief Flight Series #7
We’re somewhat turning a corner with our 7th installment and headed back towards Europe and the United Kingdom. We’re departing out of Abu Dhabi International (OMAA) and headed to London Heathrow (EGLL). While much of the cargo headed into the London area of England flows through London Stanstead (EGSS), some does still flow through Heathrow. Our flight today will be simulating an Emirates SkyCargo flight operating the Boeing 777 freighter.
Let’s Go to London
Our chariot awaits.
If you’re unfamiliar with GSX and GSX level 2 expansion by FSDreamTeam, it’ll sure help add an extra bit of immersion to your flights. As an example, I’ve showed these cargo loading images several times throughout this series. The cargo containers actually move from the carts onto the loading platform.
The the loading platform raises and the cargo container moves along.
And finally into the aircraft.
We can only look at the aircraft on the ground for so long. After all, we have a 7 hour flight ahead of us.
Leaving the sand behind us. We’ll be back.
Scooting along and making good time.

The English Channel ahead.

Another absolutely fun flight in the books.
