Shalom and greetings all my pals,

Presenting a nice flight with very very very rare Eastern livery from KTUS Tucson International Airport located 8 miles south of downtown Tucson, Arizona to KSAN San Diego International Airport located 3 miles northwest of downtown San Diego, California.

Taxiing to short of runway 29R



Entering into runway 29R for take off



Airborne on climb to FL300 with background view of Mount Kimball



Still climbing with background view of Saquaro National Park



Still climbing climbing with background view of Dove Mountain resort area



Nice sunrise but weird purplish sky



Now cruising at FL300





Cruising across desert





Look how nice sunrise shines on desert



KSAN is so busy that I had to circle twice above nice city of San Diego



On final runway approach with background view of Petco Park stadium the home of San Diego Padres



The runway approach to KSAN San Diego international airport is very exciting and dangerous especially the approach from the east is steep, necessitated by terrain which drops from 266 ft (81 m) to sea level in less than one nautical mile. Aircraft normally descend at 318 feet per nautical mile (52.3 m/km) per nautical mile. Due to terrain in San Diego and to avoid hitting the five story high famous garage building in front of runway 27, they must descend at 331 ft/nmi (54.5 m/km), exceeding the FAA standard



Seconds before touchdown





TOUCHDOWN

Thank you for viewing. Stay tuned for next exciting flight.

Regards,

Aharon
