Crossing the Persian Gulf as well as a cockpit photo... it was 40'c which made our max weight take off interesting even at sea level :yikes: :scratchhead:

They have a shortage of crew so we are helping out. Pilot shortage is real. RJA have B787's and A320's all new fleet. Great looking Airline and airport. Lovely place..

We had a no fly day today so headed down to the Dead Sea which was a dream come true.... one off my bucket list. Had one of the best days of my life! Truly amazing. Burnt but there are no words for what an experience today was :beer3:

Looks awesome! More than 15 years since I was last there, hasn't changed much it seems.
