This is my first TR here...and yes, I did go to Disneyland and California Adventure after this flight.
Unfortunately I don't have any pics from the return flight (LAX-SEA) due to a camera battery outage.

SEA-BUR
May 15, 2009
AS528
Boeing 737-700
N623AS
Cruise Altitude: FL390



Our flight departed from gate N1 at the sunny time of 6:50 in the morning. The weather was really nice outside.

The view from my seat inside the aircraft. Just before this picture was taken, I was sitting in the left seat chatting with the f/o about me hopefully flying for AS in a few years.

Flaps full down.

A vortex coming off of the end of the flaps is slightly visible during final approach.

Just after landing on runway 15. We had a late touchdown and the pilots applied heavy brakes along with the regular reverse thrust.

Arrival time was 9:17am at gate 4.

I have two videos of takeoff and landing which I'll try to post links here soon.

Thanks for viewing my first TR.

Some pics of Disneyland would have been nice. California Adventure is going to close for extensive remodel soon. Thanks again.  confused

Why did you fly to BUR to go to Disney...not LGB or SNA?

Nice Pics, kinda short, but nice!

I have also flown on N623AS, back in April to SNA.

Same thing with the other recent AS TR, I flew on one of the same tail numbers too.

You have a great point that I wondered myself. This trip was for band and organized by a travel agent. There were two groups: The first (mine) flew into BUR and out of LAX and the other into LAX and out of BUR. On the first and last days, we were in LA and the last in Hollywood, which made the airports a little closer to where we were on those days.

Going was pretty nice. There was beautiful weather and the flight was smooth. Coming back on the 18th was pretty nice. It was quite turbulent because we were skimming clouds during cruise (FL350) and ran into some solid overcast weather from FL300 down to about 6,000ft with rain pouring the entire time.

Thanks for the comment,

EDIT: I'd also like to point out that I mistakenly said that we landed on runway 15. It should have said runway 8 because we made a right turn off the far end directly into the terminal. That wouldn't have been possible with a runway 15 landing.

Here's the video links. In the second one, I say that the runway is 6800ft long. This is incorrect as I found out later, we had landed on a different one than I thought. It should say about 5800ft.

We had a late touchdown

I don't know, it seemed about normal for me. My friend had a plane at BUR parked at Hangar 1A, shown here (at the center of the map) http://maps.google.com/?ie=UTF8&ll=3...67&spn=0.002006,0.004828&t=h&z=18, and I used to just sit there with him and watch planes before we took his plane up. You'd be surprised how far down they touch down. Sounds like a good time, though.

I flew on this back in December 2007, I believe. PHX-SEA was the routing. Seat 23A.

Really?! Damn! Where did you hear this?

I was gonna ask that. SNA is generally closer.

DCA isn't going to close completely...They're doing extensive remodeling/retooling around the park...Check out Westcoaster.net for pictures and information on what they're doing...

Anyway, great TR. Hope you had fun! What do you play in the band? I was in the drumline for 3 years and played Tuba my senior year.

Nice. Mello was the only instrument I never touched.
