Flight 28

Porto VelhoSanta Cruz de la Sierra

Departure is from Porto Velho, located on the eastern bank of the Madeira River, one of the main tributaries of the Amazon. During the flight, there is a slight hitch caused by my absence, so this flight is split into two parts. During the flight, I cross the border into Bolivia. The country is located in the central part of South America, covering an area of 1 098 581 km². Bolivia lost access to the Pacific coast in the so-called “War of the Iceberg” in 1879. The largest known fossil footprint of a theropod dinosaur living around 80 million years ago was also discovered in Bolivia (near the capital Sucre) – a 115 cm long sample discovered in 2016.

The flight ends with a landing at Viru Viru International Airport near Santa Cruz.

  1. There’s certainly less to talk about on those flights, no POIs in the stock FS and not too much community made either in that region. But I love this blog, curious which routes you’ll continue taking. Take care!

    • Thank you!

      That’s right, at some points it was almost as much fun as flying over the ocean. 🙂 I’m just gonna fly a bit south and then back up to the north.
