No clouds.

No emotions.

No problem.

I'm not saying that we hope in a hard life, but yes, it's pretty boring this part of the route.

Not the easiest approach to ZPJH. The airport is in a valley, and even the ILS was dangerous. GS weren't catch.

We were low on fuel.

Lucille preferred a safer manual landing on RWY 16.

Leaving China for Taiwan, today.

A simple flight.

 

We broke 50 hrs goal of flight time, and we have almost burned 20.000 lbs of fuel... Pff!

Lucille is thrilled.

Tonight we'll celebrate.

Japan my love.

Here we are.

Yesterday was a hard route. Over the ocean for hours. (with new flags on our airframe)

When we saw the nippon land was a liberation.

On 16/11 we flew in Russia at dusk. Lucille was furious about the flying hour choice by me and Maurice. Not the safety one.

Today, 21/11, we are facing the longest route of entire travel.

 

711,6 nm...

 

On a Twin Otter...

 

It's raining, and it's cold.

 

But we have 52 knots wind at our back. And it's marvellous for fuel saving.

Today starts the toughest part of the big-trip.

Alaska...

 

Snow in Russia, in Kamchatka. A job for a Twin Otter.

We are sorrounded by the giant Koryaksky volcano.

On 22/11 this is what happened: low flat clouds below us and freezing air.

Isles of Alaska are mesmerizing.

On 24/11 the finish line was a conic ice cream.

The skyline was similiar to a Stanislaw Lem panorama.

Today, 29/11, a blind day and a marvellous one.

The blinding was mainly due at the alaskan clouds.

The amazing at the PAJC airport. Wonderful location.

 

And we broke 50 hrs of flying time!

 

Lucille will paint a celebrating flag of Alaska.
