Tucson - San Diego / Boeing 737-800 (SWA450) / IFR

This was a pretty smooth flight, mirroring the real thing, except that I started out about half an hour late. The same clouds and IMC that was so worrisome in my Bonanza just looked pretty from the flight deck of a 737. I didn't manage the descent as well as I might have liked, and I established late on the localizer, but other than that things went okay. I landed by hand and it was quite smooth. I was very irritated to see flickering in the KSAN scenery again, though. Nobody anywhere on the Web seems to know what causes this or how to fix it.
