Pilots of the Caribbean 2: AAL 1291 – MIA to PAP
Great, now the bad weather keeps following me – even in the sim. When I fired up my FS, the weather in Miami was nice with few clouds, 32°C and sunshine. 30 minutes later, just after pushback, there was a heavy thunderstorm over the airport and in the vicinity. Weather in Haiti wasn’t that beautiful either: Visibility below 10 nm, cloudy and hot with high humidity. But at least it was partially sunny and no rain.

And one from outside.
They have a very small airport in Port-au-Prince. Probably because Haiti is the poorest country in the Americas. Here we’re backtracking on runway 10 to the only taxiway that connects the runway with the apron.
Thanks for reading today’s report. Next flight will be back to Miami. Let’s see, if we can make the third thunderstorm in a row, when landing there…
