The flight passing over what appears to be Greenland and a number of clear blue snowmelt pools.
Nearing descent, the pilot needed to make a second pass before the plane could be cleared for landing.
The first pass ran west to east, but the second pass rerouted the plane north to south and right along
the Las Vegas Strip in the midday summer, so there were plenty of opportunities to photograph the
Strip hotels before landing at McCarran Airport.

Touchdown Vegas and greeted by the row of palm trees along Sunset Road.
On the ground, the McCarran Airport terminal comes into sight.
Crossing the finish line! And a view of the tarmac road to anywhere…
