Flyover States: UPS 2930 – PHL to ONT
I felt like hauling some more Cargo. So I jumped aboard my beautiful MD-11F, and did the UPS flight 2930 from Philadelphia to Ontario, CA.
Here we go! But be warned, quite a few pictures this time.
Our routing. As you can see, we will be crossing the entire United States (10 States to be exact). Most of them, especially the midwestern states, are the so called Flyover States. Take-off will be on 09L, CRZ altitude is 35,000 feet, and we will be landing on runway 26R in Ontario.
This might help to understand the difficulty of this region. We have: LAX, a billion other airports in the region, incredible amounts of traffic on the SOCAL frequency, mountains, and often some fog on top.
Thanks for reading!
