What is the flight path from Chicago to Tokyo japan?

Hello,

I took this route about three years ago on United. You will fly over much of Canada and lower Alaska. You will see a great deal of the Aleutian islands, swamps, lakes, and icebergs, even in summer. After that you will fly over sparse coastal Islands of Japan and touchdown in Narita. Watch your $$$ in Japan. It goes fast but have fun. It's a trip of a lifetime that you're never going to forget!!!

Why do planes change take off different directions at Heathrow?

In general and not specifically Heathrow aircraft takeoff into the wind, this helps reduce the four flight problems of weight, drag, thrust and lift.

I hope this answer helped

What is the flight path from Johannesburg to New York?

South African airways provides one direct flight from Johannesburg to New York and vice versa. This flight requires a stop over in Dakar for refueling, but there is no plane change and the stop is usually less than an hour.

In addition, South African airways provides a direct flight from Jo'burg to Washington, DC (also with the Dakar pit stop).

I add the this pit stop in dakar is due , as Patrick Smith mentionned in his book , to the fact that johanessburg is at some elevation , so a long distance for takeoff is needed for a fully loaded aircraft, hence breaking the flight in two trips to refuel in dakar.

Why did I see the Scottish Highlands from the plane when I flew from London to Los Angeles?

The world is a globe, not flat. The route as seen on a map is much different than the way you would actually fly. On a map it seems to make sense to go straight across the Atlantic from Europe. In actual fact, you fly north, over the very north Atlantic and down by Canada. If you look at a globe, you will see that it is quicker to fly that way. That is why you would have headed over Scotland.

London Heathrow Airport to San Francisco Int Airport Flight Path?

Check out http://gc.kls2.com. It's called the great circle mapper, and it'll give you an idea of what the shortest path between the two cities is. Just so you know, that flight will take off to the west from Heathrow, fly over Northern Ireland, just south of Iceland, cross the southern end of Greenland and Baffin Island, make landfall around Churchill in Manitoba, and enter the U.S. in western Montana.

What is the flight path from London to Vancouver?

The flight path varies dramatically, I've seen the planes take 4 routes:

The typical flight path is over the Yorkshire dales and Central Scotland. The second most common route is heading north towards Manchester and then turning northwest towards Belfast. The third most common route is heading west over the Brecon Beacons in Wales then northwest to Dublin. Although very rare and not used very often, the planes head directly north taking them over York, Newcastle, the North Sea and Aberdeenshire.

What is the flight path from London to Orlando?

Exact routings between London and Orlando vary according to air traffic restrictions, weather conditions etc. A typical routing would be as follows: # After take off the aircraft heads South West towards Southhamton and the Isle of Wight. # It then follows the South Coast towards Devon before heading slightly North towards and then following West the Bristol Channel. # At this point the aircraft gets its transatlantic clearance which takes it West over the Atlantic towards New Foundland passing to the South of Ireland. The transatlantic part of the flight normally takes around 4 1/2 to 5 hours. # The aircraft then heads down the Eastern Seaboard of Canada and then the United States. Although there is very little to see on flights between the UK and North America the right side of the plane usually offers more to see. Major cities that the aircraft will pass close to include Boston, New York and Washington. Flight time is usually around 9 hours. On leaving the UK the aircraft may be routed towards Wales and then over Ireland but in almost all circumstances the plane will enter North America around New Foundland. Aircraft going to the West Coast will usually cross the Atlantic further North often crossing Greenland. Flights destined for the East Coast follow the same route as that to Orlando. Owing to time zones flights between Europe and North America tend to be during the day and North America to Europe flights are usually at night. Eastbound flights are around an hour shorter than Westbound ones owing to the jetstream assisting the plane.
