I liked the United FS report so much, I decided to do one myself.

(for some reason I can't get the pics to go any bigger)

*Report Info*
Departure Airport: Manchester, gate 5(MAN)
Departure Time: 0810
Departure Airport Weather: Wind Moderate, few clouds
---------------------------
Arrival Airport: Dublin (DUB)
Arrival Time:0845
Arrival Airport Weather: Wind Moderate, few clouds, moderate rain
---------------------------
Airline: British Airways (BA)
Aircraft: Boeing 737-500

*The Report*
I filed a direct GPS flight plan to DUB. Set everything up for the flight and we were ready to get clearance.



I was given my altitude and route, and contacted ground. I was given instructions to taxi out to Rwy 24R and started to push-back.





I held short of 24R and contacted the Tower. I was cleared for take off and lined up then accelerated down the runway.



We climbed out of MAN







Leaving the coast behind



leveling out at FL220



Descending into DUB



ATC gave clearance for the ILS approach for Rwy 28 and we began our turn to the Rwy.

On approach



Touching down







Crossing the Active Runway, with an Aer Lingus BAe 146 lining up



Parked up at the gate





If anyone knows how to get the photos bigger, then please let me know.

Any questions or comments welcomed

Well done A320! A rather, let's say, different kind of trip report. Great reading! Keep them coming!

Nice stuff, your landing looked a little bit too much nose up, landing attitude should be something like 5 degrees? Were you trimmed right, and doing about -150fpm on touchdown?

@Henry

Yes the nose was in a high pitch attitude. I was a little high, so had the throttles at idle - so to get a smooth touch down I had to pitch the nose higher than normal.

Nice trip report, A320! But I'm wondering why you were flying a 737 and not an A320...  Laugh out loud

A330fan1, Yes, many FS planes have wingviews, including the POSKY A330 (yet another thing for you to look forward to)!  Big grin

Long live the A330!
