My guess would be Bogotá, Colombia.

Cockpit looks very familiar...

You need to load another 30,000# of freight on that thing to make the takeoff more interesting.




It has 29,000 lbs. of cargo and 11,627 lbs. of fuel. Just enough to go to SLSU and then to SLVR.

The -700 seems to be a much better fit for high altitudes (8,000 to 13,000) when compared to the -800. The payloads are similar, but the -700 performs much better. The interesting thing is there is usually only a couple knots between flaps 30 and 40 on the -700, but on the -800 it is as much as 8 knots (similar payloads.)

Of the B737NGs the -700 seems to be the "sweet spot". :-))
