After about a month of hanging out on the beaches of Hawaii, it was time to head back to the mainland. I flew out here on a Hawaiian Airlines MD-11 from DTW, but hey – since this is only a flight sim and I’m not bound by the rules of the real world, I can work for any airline I want and pick the exact aircraft I want to fly. Today, I felt like hauling a load of freight (pineapples perhaps?) on a UPS MD-11F to LAX.
Heading back to the mainland after time off on the islands is never easy, but I’ve got a hankerin’ to head over to Europe soon so it was necessary to get moving. I decided to depart out of Honolulu right after sunrise, which would allow me to arrive at LAX while the sun was still shining. I always like arriving in LA during the daylight hours, mostly because there is some nice scenery around the LA basin that would be a real shame to miss if arriving at night.
So long, Honolulu – until next time!
