DC-9 from New York

Postby Dave Reed » Mon Sep 03, 2018 9:00 pm

It's the end of the Labor Day Weekend and we're packed full of people, people who are leaving their relatives in the crazy world of New York and heading back to the serenity of the midwest, namely Milwaukee.

Pulling out of the ramp. No matter how many times I leave LGA, I am always amazed at how freakin short the runway is!

Climbing out over NJ

Level at FL340. We have continuous light chop and a fifty knot headwind here. Oh this flight is gonna suck. Food service will be a disaster in this. We decide to take a chance and climb to FL380.
Image

Up at FL380 the ride is only marginally better, but the headwind is unchanged.

Meal service over, everyone is quiet as they recuperate from their visits. It's a long couple of hours to Milwaukee.

On the ILS for 1L. Technically it's VFR but the clouds were doing a great job of hiding the airport so we opted for the vector to the ILS.

On the ground at last! With the continuous turbulence from start to finish, the flight was a groner, especially for those last few rows. The P&W jets are terrible about staying in synch, so those poor chaps in the back had a continuous thrum-thrum-thrum to put up with for so long. But it sure is good to be back in good ol Wisconsin!
