    Geneva to Cape Town and Back!! | New EuroCay Route

    Hello all,

    I just flew the wonderful new EuroCay route of Geneva to Cape Town and back, taking about 11 hours in each direction. Took some wonderful pictures, and I hope to share them with you.

    Flight #1 CAY007 Double O Seven!
    Geneva, Switzerland [LSGG] - Cape Town, South Africa [FACT]
    Equipment: Boeing 767-300ER

    At the beginning of this flight, we had 7 Cayman Captains flying, all the same route. At the end, there were two, Jon and I. According to investigators, weird stories occurred:

    -One pilot, Tayvis Walters, managed to score a landing of something around -150000FPM, which I didn't know was possible. Also, this was in the middle of Africa, with his autopilot still on.

    -Another pilot, Andrew McBean told investigators that a massive giraffe was in the way and destroyed the plane. Picture here:


    -Shane Pinheiro had some power issues in his plane, all electric and hydraulic systems suddenly died. Some believe this is the fault of Trinidad mechanics that did not inspect the plane carefully.

    -All the others, I do not know. Many did not make it alive. RIP.

    Back to the shots, here was the route we were given:
    MEDA4N MEDAM NIZ ALG DEC UM858 DOPEL UG869 TBK UZ153 JBA UG727 FARES UM731 FL UA403 BZ KSA UA611 BUDEL VHU AKAZU UA617 WHV UTULO UN185 WY














    Duration: 10 hours and 52 minutes

    Flight #2 CAY008
    Cape Town, South Africa [FACT] - Geneva, Switzerland [LSGG]
    Equipment: Boeing 767-300ER

    I flew this one solo, no incidents. Here was the company route:
    TETA1C WY UR987 VNA UR526 LIKAD UW118 IT UG861 DLA UR854 TJJ UA604 AS UR978 BOD UM998 CSO UA605 PIGOS UM622 IRMAR UN853 KINES KINE1R
    I would NOT like to live here!!


















    Duration: 11h 30m

    BONUS: Flight #3
    Geneva, Switzerland [LSGG] to Bridgetown, Barbados [TBPB]
    Equipment: Boeing 767-300ER

    This flight started out with 7 planes. However, giant whales jumped and destroyed 4 of them, according to our pilot Andrew McBean.

    Company Route:
    DEPUL UY105 LERGA UN869 AGN STG 4218N 4122N 4026N 3831N 3636N 3440N 3244N 2848N 2552N 2156N 1759N BGI
    Only the departure, my camera ran out of energy towards the middle of the flight. :(



















    Duration: 9h 30m

    Hope you enjoyed the pictures!

    Yeah, he just came out of nowhere and took out my left engine. I asked him to get out the way and he refused to. I continued flying and then next thing you know it. I'm in the middle of the Sahara eating cold sandwiches left in the aircraft.

    Nice one Pierre, great shots as well. Enjoy the rest of your flights.

    Very nice pics Pierre, how does the CS763 compare to the 757? I guess I need to update that paint now the scheme has changed.

    Thanks guys! Andrew, hope you manage to get out of the Sahara!

    The CS763 feel much heavier, slower, harder to climb, with a better VC and flight deck, a bit worse frames, a bit different physics.
