Rivu starting up Engine 1! Fantastic shot.

Nice shot of Ossian holding short waiting for his slot for departure.

Taken from the JoinFS map with all of us following the set routing! Very cool.

Slow Airbus A340 is Slow. Ossian about to overtake Anish.

Nice shot from Marc here at cruise.

What do you get for taking an Airbus on a Boeing only event? Left behind. Ossian passing Anish here haha!
