« on: October 29, 2019, 09:46:34 AM »
Shalom and greetings all my pals,

Presenting a darn fun DC-3 flight from TUPJ Terrance B. Lettsome International Airport located in Beef Island, a small island off the main island of Tortola in the British Virgin Islands to TJIG Fernando Luis Ribas Dominicci Airport located in  Isla Grande which is suburb of the municipality of San Juan, Puerto Rico

Boarding the plane

Starting engines with background view of shore waters of Trellis Bay and the building is Beef Island Guest House

Holding short of runway 07 awaiting for clearance to enter into runway for more taxi and backtrack

Entering into runway to taxi to beginning of runway 07 for backtrack and take off with background view of waters of Conch Bay

Backtracking with background view of waters of Well Bay and you can see on back of sailing boat a restaurant called The Courtyard at Surfsong

Starting take off run!!

Airborne on climb to 10,000 ft

Climbing above beauty of Caribbean waters

Wing view of Great Camanoe island and Scrub Island

Now at 5,000 ft still climbing to 10,000 ft

You can tell from clouds that the plane is now at 10,000 ft

Flying through clouds at 5,000 ft

View of island of Flamenco Culebra looms ahead

Approaching eastern shores of Puerto Rico

At 3,000 ft

Arrggghhh  thick clouds blocking my view!

You can see out of cockpit window the WHOLE view of TJSJ to be sure that planes taking off from runway 08 would not hit you since DC-3 does NOT have radars!

On final runway approach to runway 09 with background view of San Juan suburb called Catano Pueblo

Still on final runway approach with background view of strip of forest park called Parque La Esperanza
