    Default Khudzhand (UTDL) Tajikistan to Ninoy Aquino Intl (RPLL) Manila, Philippines (A380)

    Another long flight for the record. Dawn takeoff, very heavy fog. Reminded me of my first "zero visibility" takeoff training for my Instrument Rating. So the first two are not very "picture worthy."

    PART 1

    I like the the 3rd screenshot in part 1 lol.

    Just out of interest, how many remember Oceanic ATC using shortwave radio to contact aircraft using the Sellcall, of a four letter code?
    I used to listen years ago to aircraft crossing the Atlantic on a shortwave radio on either upper or lower side band.

    Long, and nice flight with that big bird David. Enjoyed the pics, esp. the Manilla approach ones over the city.

    I tried to enhance that shot but I couldn’t do it justice showing how thick the fog was.

    Never had a short wave radio
