ShackStream: Australian Desert bound with Shack Air

Time to take a short detour from our flights towards Western Australia to head into the center of the continent for some desert fun.

Shack Air has been making its way westward from Melbourne with a goal of reaching Perth, Australia. This week, captain Jan is taking a detour to the center of the Australian continent. We'll be flying our Qantas Airbus A320 Neo to Alice Springs. While this is a significant detour, it does set up next week's flight, which will see Shack Air switch to a smaller airplane and go sightseeing around Ayres Rock.

Our flight will take the full two hours, so we'll have little time to waste getting out of Adelaide at 6 p.m. PT/9 p.m. ET tonight. We'll once again be flying in the excellent freeware add-on Airbus A32Nx from Flybywire and sporting the special 100 years Qantas livery available from For more details of what was included in the Australian world update, check out the trailer below.
