BlueJet Flight 211: Hawaiian Interisland Flight (Attempt #2)

BlueJet flight 211 (an Airbus A320-200) takes off from Honolulu International Airport.
Once my Airbus A320-200 lifted off from Honolulu International Airport's runway 08, I knew that BlueJet flight 211 was going to be an amazing one. The flight proceeded well, with few problems. The twist came when I was approaching what I thought (and still think) was Hilo Airport. Suddenly, a huge gust of wind blew the A320 to the left of the runway. Fighting the wind, I made a hard right and re-aligned my aircraft with the runway. Then, I discovered that I was way too high to land! Therefore, the approach became a little steep, and I had to idle the engines a bit early. But, all in all, the landing was pretty good for an A320 on such a short runway.

I really enjoyed that flight and I hope to have more such flying adventures again. I really wish that you could have experienced that flight. It was truly a flight to remember.

Best Regards,
Captain BS

P.S. Here are some photos from the flight:

How it all started...

So there I was, a ton of wind shear hitting my Airbus A320 as I was on final approach into an airport in Hawaii. The flight had rocked so far, but now, the turbulence was really getting on my nerves. I swung the aircraft onto the runway heading, determined not to have to resort to a go-around. I braced myself for a crash landing and...."screech!" went the tires on the runway. We had landed! I applied all the brakes and the aircraft rolled to a halt.

No this wasn't in real life - I'm not a real pilot, but I really want to be one. This adventure was only made possible through the magic of simulation - to be specific, through the magic of Captain YS' YS Flight Simulator. I fly all sorts of aircraft in Microsoft Flight Simulator 2004, but when I need to have some real flying fun, I turn to YS Flight SImulator!

So basically, this whole blog is dedicated to my adventures in YS Flight Simulator, with the occasional post about FS 2004. So to all aircraft enthusiasts, enjoy!

Until next time,
Captain BS
