Phoenix - Los Angeles / Boeing 737-800 (SWA673) / IFR

Time to get current in the 737-800 again, so I flew a familiar route from Phoenix to Los Angeles. Good weather along the way, no turbulence, nice scenery. I mirrored the real-world flight, but I arrived first, for some reason.

I decided to fly most of the approach by hand this time, following the needles on the flight director. Surprisingly, I did a pretty good job, and landing was very smooth. The weather was good and I didn't have any wild winds to deal with, which helped. I even found my gate (14) without any trouble. The only little problem was flickering of the runway, although it wasn't as bad as it sometimes gets. I sure wish I knew what caused it.
