Microsoft Flight Simulator 2020 Stepping Stones Challenge, Leg 39: Sammara - Al-Suwaira.
Taken at the Tigris near Dhuluija, Saladin Governorate.
Taken above a lake near Dudjail, Saladin Governorate.
Taken above Baghdad.
Summary: Thanks to LiveWeather this was a challenging flight since I had constantly 18-22 knots tail wind and later cross winds of the same intensity. It was a beautiful scenery with Baghdad as this trip’s highlight: You have to remember - this is the first capital city we’ve flown over since Istanbul. Also I found a “non-existent” lake near Dudjail which isn’t even shown on Google Maps except on the Satellite Pictures. Strange, huh?
Did you know? Despite Baghdad being one of the largest Arab cities it has a relatively small size in comparison with it’s populace: About 8.1 million people live on just 673 square kilometers. It was also the cultural center of the Islamic / Abbasid Golden Age from 8th - 13th century which ended with Baghdad’s destruction by Mongol forces in 1258.
I hope you had a good start into your weekend! Tune in tomorrow for our next flight from Al-Suwaira to Al-Kut.

Microsoft Flight Simulator 2020 Stepping Stones Challenge, Leg 38: Al-Fathah - Samarra.
Taken above Shawish, Saladin Governorate.
Taken east of the Tigris. In the background, beyond the river islands, the city of Baiji can be spotted.
Taken near Ad-Dawr, Saladin Governorate. On the left a center pivot irrigation farm can be seen.
Summary: Do you know the feeling that your content starts repeating and it must be boring to your followers? I got this feeling when I took multiple pictures of the Tigris - again. Since we’ve been following this river for so long and despite of its beauty, it starts to feel repetitive. I might switch things up a bit and fly cross-country for the next few trips to gain some impressions of Iraq’s landscape.
Did you know? The system of center-pivot irrigation shown in Picture No. 3 was developed in 1940s Colorado and is still today one of the most effective methods of water distribution in agriculture. Pipe segments with built-in sprinklers are rotated on wheeled towers around the circular field. Formerly driven by water power today’s pivots are mostly powered by electric motors. The system is used in the US, Australia, Brazil and multiple Middle-Eastern and North African countries since it is very effective to irrigate desert or desert-like areas.
I hope you’re enjoying your Friday as much as I do! Tune in tomorrow for our next flight from Samarra to Al-Suwaira.

Microsoft Flight Simulator 2020 Stepping Stones Challenge, Leg 37: Mosul - Al-Fathah.
Taken near Hammam al-Alil, Niniveh Governorate.
Taken near Alahud, Saladin Governorate.
Taken near Al-Shirqat, Saladin Governorate.
Summary: As in the previous post explained this was a problematic journey for me as soon as I left the Tigris near Al-Shirqat. Still this route went over a beautiful stretch of land that I wouldn’t want to miss in my photo collection. I followed our old friend Tigris from Mosul until I had to veer to the left towards our airfield near Kirkuk. Also I could use LiveWeather again!
Did you know? The name “Tigris” may be Greek in origin, meaning “Tiger” but its etymological roots reach far back into ancient Mesopotamian history! Tigris is itself just a translation from the Persian “Tigra”, which is also a translation of the older Elamite “Tigra”, which originated in the Sumerian “Idigna”. Idigna comes from “Id (I)gina” meaning “running water” or “swift river” in contrast to the much slower Euphrates.
Enjoy your Thursday and tune in tomorrow for the next trip from Al-Fathah to Samarra!
