  4. 19722nm for me, excluding weird atc routing, like avoiding Cambodia. Odd because the band Dead Kennedies extolled the virtue of a Holiday in Cambodia..

    Set 3 complete Bombay to Calcutta (or whatever the youngsters call them today...) Very misty early on when leaving Bombay Tower view, strictly IFR A small strip in the middle of a jungle, interesting! A few more facilities at Calcutta Time for a curry and Elephant beer! The story so far, this is a different experience from the last RTW. Brisk would be a good description Bring on Set 4..

    Here we go again then Set 1, divided into 7 legs to suit the times I have available to fly. Settled on the trusty Kingair because I know how long it takes to get anywhere in my dear old Dragon Rapide I'd only get bored.... First flight, a quick jump over the Channel to Paris On to Turin Love the Alps For some strange reason I decided to head south at dusk! This resulted in changing the destination to a different Rome airport Next, off to Brindisi That's better, more to see A really early start for the trip to Santorini Not a lot here, so I'll press on with my tight schedule Crossing the Med en route to Egypt A quick hop over to Port Said Sand Sand and green stuff approaching Port Said, now for a couple of pint's of Toby's cat's piss The story so far First set complete, now for some more sand! Happy Landings people!
  8. Now that made me laugh, I did think the same when I read it. Come on Toby, what's the story?
  9. Why don't you copy mine, to get you started? Then you can add your own ideas when you get the time.

    Haha, excellent Mathijs! Ahh, I must have misunderstood the rules: "You will create a forum topic where the first topic will contain your complete route, aircraft and other details before October 1st. " I'll be there then! Thanks for the relies chaps.
  13. oops.. Missed the deadline. Have a good trip people, I'll tag along behind and watch progress with interest!
  14. haha, I think I used up my screen shot quota on the previous round the world trip . I thought about using a DH Dragon Rapide, but it took forever on the Crete to Cape Town rally. I may well join you, having just got back from RTW2015.
  15. Last batch: back to Paderborn

    Certainly Neal, I'll tidy up my list. It's basically FSX plus Playsim airports of UK and Ireland, including Channel Islands, Scilly, Isle of Man etc. Another thing I did was fly a Beaver seaplane around the coastline, investigating all the rivers and islands... How the long winter evenings fly past
