Majorca or Mallorca is a beautiful island to the south-south-east of Barcelona, in the Mediterranean sea. It is situated between Minorca and Ibiza, which, along with Mallorca, form the Balearic Islands. While the southern part is rather flat and boring, the north-western part has a great mountainous scenery with mountains up to 1445 meters (Puig Major). Take your favourite mid-class airliner like the A320(neo)-family, the 737-series or the E-Jet-Family. Start at Barcelona and taxi to the preferred runway. When at a safe altitude, turn to 164° and head directly to Mallorca while climbing to the cruise altitude. If the wind is coming from the right direction, you have the luck to get the approach from the north-east to runway 24 and you can see the great mountains on your right while landing. If not, well, then you'll see them while departing ;)
