    Our journey today begins in the crowded terminal at Istanbul's Ataturk International Airport. We make our way through the crowds in the packed terminal to our gate, where we catch a bus across the ramp to a remote stand where our aircraft is waiting to take us to Sofia.
    We board through the front steps and take our seat in 7F, and wait for the aircraft to be refuelled. After a short delay we push back and taxi to runway 35R where we join the queue for evening departures. The sun sets as we line up for takeoff, and we depart getting a beautiful view of Istanbul at dusk. Once we are over the sea and heading east, the sun rises once more illuminating the engine in a beautiful orange colour, before it sets once more over Bulgaria.
    We commence our descent and make a beautiful approach and landing over the city of Sofia, where we land on schedule and taxi into the gate We disembark and head towards the taxi ramp to get a ride to a nearby hotel.

    Great safety vid by TK :) Worlds apart from the staid old announcements of days past. Another very catchy one is the Virgin America (now part of Alaskan) safety video.

    I love it and this must be short haul flight.
    Boeing 737-800 are one of my favorite type of aircrafts. I flew AirTran Airways Boeing 737-800 three times eight years ago: MCO-DTW on May 21st when I headed for one of my ten cousins’ high school graduation in Laingsburg, Michigan. DTW-MCO on May 25th when I headed home and MKE-MCO on July 15th when I headed home at that night from visiting my ex girlfriend in Hartford, Wisconsin began on June 14th but got first flight delay for 3 or 4 hours.
    Next video is Lufthansa A320 Istanbul to Munich right?

    I wonder why the plane made such a wide turn during descent vs. just landing west-bound.

    • Noel Philips
      Noel Philips  Year ago

      Depends on the wind direction. Landing with a tailwind can be very dangerous, and cause a very long landing.

  • Валери Владимиров

    Thank you for this amazing video. I watch every your flight but this time you landed in my city Sofia- the city where I live and I am very glad. Thank you again!!! 😊

  • Rather Be Traveling

    Very Nice! I am need of instruction on your moving map. Which programs are using use to create it, if you don't mind giving out the secret. I am getting my flight files from FlightRadar24, but haven't found a good mapping program to get the tracking accomplished.

    • Rather Be Traveling
      Rather Be Traveling Year ago

      Can you show me what you have on your heading in your first csv file? I make it all the way to using CloudAhoy, but it keeps saying there isn't time in the file. :(

    • Rather Be Traveling
      Rather Be Traveling Year ago

      Thank you for pointing me in the right direction. If I have more question after I try and get this going, I hope you don't mind me asking them... :) (I owe you a beer or two ... six) one day if we meet at an airport during our travels.

    • Noel Philips
      Noel Philips  Year ago

      So there's several parts to this, it's a long old process. FR24 CSV, modify all the columns into the correct (GPX) format. Then use GPSVisualiser to convert to a GPX. Once I've done that I interpolate and spline with Topofusion (to get the smooth curves) and upload that GPX to CloudAhoy, which lets me play the flight in real time (screen record). Once that's done, I use Dashware with the video of the map and the original GPX as the data source with a custom gauge I created for the airshow display at the bottom of the screen. This spits out a new MP4 which I drop onto the video and time to a specific point (crossing a road or something). Hope that helps :)

    Wow. 2 sunsets in one day? It may be because of the different time zones.
    Did you know that Istanbul is building a new airport? It's expected to be the largest airport in the WORLD! It will serve up to 250 million passengers!
    Dubai is also building another airport too, which will be huge as well!
