The view: Moscow from FL380
The pilot: Richard Pittet
The airplane: Boeing 787
The mission: Enroute to Delhi, via the polar route.
The memory: The airspace over Pakistan was closed, so we routed north of Greenland and Iceland, sliced over the top of Finland, directly over Moscow, then via Turkey over Oman… south over the water, then a hard left to Delhi. 100,000 kg of fuel loaded and nearly 300 passengers. 17.3 hours chock to chock.
