Photo taken in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic just seconds after saying goodbye to the passengers, with the pleasure of having fulfilled my duty and the satisfaction of having received many God blessings and many many thank you very much for bringing us safe; that positive vibes fills your lungs, your hearth with hunger, hunger to fly, fills you of hunger to be a better pilot every day and in that moment while I’m felling all this emotions comes to my mind one of my favorite phrases that frase is flying flying is everything. Today the approach to Santo Domingo was very interesting we executed the localizer approach Runway 17, the Glide Slope was out of service this brings up the minimum for landing, when we are over the VOR starting the approach the tower informs us that the airport was under minimum visibility at the threshold of runway 35 At that moment I think, I hope that the Runway 17 remains opens until we landed, then wile continuing with the approach we review the missed approach procedure; We reach the minimum and we did not see the Runway , so we executed the missed approach after the procedure I asked for vectors, airport information and the weather forecast; we decided to wait 15 minutes to try again another approach on the second attempt everything was different, calm, we saw the Runway at a thousand feet and ended up landing on Runway 35 with crosswind winds.
Never stop learning.
Training is the key that opens all doors.
Photographing aerial demonstration teams is hard. It’s hard because it poses a unique challenge: make an image unlike the thousands that have come before it, every year. I think I managed to get something a little different with this one, with the slightly overcast sky serving as a terrific seamless white, the @usnavyblueangels are suspended here as almost cutouts from another photograph.
