Nordic Expedition 2: SAS 4576 – TRD to TOS via BOO

It’s two for the price of one today! Next flight on our Nordic Expedition will be from Trondheim to Bodo. SAS operates this route with B737-700 via Bodo. We have to get up early, ETD is 08:05 am CET.

It’s not really that cold today in Norway. Around 11°C (52F) at the airports we visit on this tour. Take off in Trondheim will be on runway 27. We’ll be climbing to FL370, only to descend again immediately after reaching TOC. Landing in Bodo will be on 25.
We will then spend a little time on the ground. At 09:25 am CET the flight is scheduled to continue to Tromso. Take off will also be on 25, we’ll then follow SID ABTA1B, cruise on FL210 for a short while and land on runway 19 in Tromso. Approach will be on SID AND4M. I don’t trust ATC vectors in this case, as there is a lot of dangerous terrain around Tromso. We don’t wanna take any risks…

Time to enjoy the Norwegian landscape. That’s why we’re here!

We made it through!

On approach for Bodo. The Glide Slope has a significantly higher angle due to terrain in the flightpath.

Short final.

And welcome to our first stop, Bodo.

We arrived a little early, so we’re in no hurry during the preparations for the next leg to Tromso.

Ready to go further up North!

Great location here.

We’re climbing quick, not much time to reach the CRZ altitude on this short leg.

Following the SID.

This looks interesting! You can clearly see that we’re closing in on 70N…

Descending already.

The approach path into Tromso will take us through a lot of dangerous terrain.

I like this view.

I’ll let the pictures on short final speak for themselves.

Next flight will be something special, we’re going to Spitsbergen, flying into the northernmost airport in the world with scheduled service!

  1. Nice report as always! Surprised to see an Iberworld plane in Tromso…charter I presume?

    Keep ’em coming!

    • Thanks!
      I was wondering the same! But since I only use real world flight plans, I guess it’s in there somewhere…probably a charter, yea! Who can blame the people in Tromso for their intention to fly into the sun 😀

    • Thanks Al! Something very, very special coming up for my next 2 flights: I’m gonna use FSX!!! Since FS9 won’t allow me to fly to Spitsbergen (the airport there is floating around in the landscape due to the limitations of FS9 when nearing the Poles), I’m gonna use the NGX and fly into a nice scenery of Spitsbergen I found. But it’s only gonna be the flight to and from there. FPS won’t go below 25 in this case, as the scenery is in the middle of nowhere…

  2. Sounds excellent Max. I recently tweaked my rig (to 4.2Ghz) and then FSX to Kosta’s specs and it runs even better. But to be honest nothing is wrong with FS9! At times I miss it…..

    One thing we do need in the FS word is a good ENAT (Alta). The NAX WAR DVD has an amazing landing at Alta there.
