Good evening all,

 

At  the moment still in Hoogeveen EHHO (The Netherlands), organizing stores and fuel.

Will depart one of these days to London.

Flying the Aeroworx DC-3 / C-47 on a max. altitude of 10.000 feet.

Will also visit Turin, Brindisi, Allahabad, Shanghai and Omaha because Mr. Fogg was there during his trip around the world.

In my flight plan are a lot of small legs to fly , so I might combine some legs. 

Will be using X-Plane 11.

 

All the best and see you in London.

Indeed, the oil supply is a bit difficult with the local dealer here, so just before Xmas.

 

I did find an old schoolbook "Orkaan navigatie" (Typhoon navigation at sea), might come in handy on my low and slow altitude flying in the Far East.

And "NO" , I do not bring a sextant with me on this trip, I bought myself a small Garmin.

 

See you later,

Geert Boer

Dear Mr. Boer,

 

Congratulations! The C47 is an excellent choice for this daring venture! She combines reliability and redundancy as well as superior range.

 

Regarding oil provisioning: a lot can be improved here with proper maintenance. If I can be of any assistance with my extensive collection of aircraft maintenance manuals, please let me know! I am excitedly looking forward to meet you and your plane in London!

 

 

Sincerly

Filip Nebbel
