Around noon on Jan 11th, I took off on a North American T6, from Bangalore to Sri Sathya Sai, (Puttaparthi ), to visit it again, because I have been there in 2004, doing a Embraer Legacy demo flight.

It is modernized, but the runway that was hand made by thousands of the religious leader Sai Baba, continues as good as always, have a look on the pics:

In the afternoon of Jan 11th, I left Puttaparthi flying a Mustang P51, destination Goa, for centuries a portuguese enclave in India, visited by Vasco da Gama, the navigator that found the way to go from

Europe to India, by the South Atlantic and Indian oceans, in 1498. Pics:

Nice!!

 

A little tip: once you selected your images for upload and they appear in the gallery, you can move them from the gallery to wherever you want them in the text. You can then also copy text before and after the images. This way you can put the caption right under the images and also get a little space between the images!

Finally on Jan 14th I left Mumbai to proceed the around the world flight. Initally I went to Agra, near New Delhi, to visit the Taj Mahal. Agra is about 150 km south-east of New Delhi and, fortunatelly, it had a superb visibility,

so I could overfly the Taj Mahal and take good pictures of the building and gardens.

Jan 20th I flew from Surat Thani (VTSB), in Thailand to Kuala Lumpur (WMKK). In real life, I have been in Kuala Lumpur in 2004, flying an Embraer E170, on a demo tour to Air Malasia, that started for me in Brisbane, Australia, where we changed the whole 

demo team. From there we proceed making demo flights in Australia, then Indonesia, Singapore, Malasia and finally in India, where we changed the whole demo team again and went via comercial flights to our home in Brazil. So it was a pleasure be in Kuala Lumpur again,

after so many years. Pics:

Once arrived at SIngapore the DC6 had to be overhauled. I had flown almost 70 hours from S Jose dos Campos in Brazil to London to start the around the world flight, up to arriving in Singapore. So it will need some rest days

here at Changi airport while the maintenance people check its spark plugs, oil, fuel and hydraulic filters, neumatics pressures and eventual oil, fuel and hydraulic leaks. It also needs a through out cleaning. So after passing the

Saturday Jan 22nd strolling at this beautiful city, I started a tour of the region flying a Cessna CJ4 with Brazilian tail number PP-ZEZ, praising my Brazilian Long EZ, to Medan, Indonesia.

Less than an hour and a half flight. Medan in west Sumatra was the first indonesian city that I knew in real life. It was in the late seventies, during a Bandeirante (Embraer E110) flight from Brazil to Japan. I come to Medan flying from Bangalore

in India. On the previous leg: Karachi, Pakistan to Bangalore, I experienced the most inflight turbulence during my whole life. It was over Mumbai VOR that I overflew at 11,000 ft of altitude. The Bandeirante I was flying was a brand new cargo

version, equipped with a huge cargo door on the left rear fuselage, that had a smaller passenger door inside it. It also had a crew door on the forward fuselage, that hinged outwards on its lower side. This door was forward of the left propeller, but 

not too far from it. When we approched Mumbai VOR, the ATC inform us that there was a russian big Antonov, holding over this VOR at 12,000 ft, so about 300 m above us. But the ATC did not request that we made any deviation.

Suddenly we struck its downwash. The impact was enormous, our crew (two pilots and an engineer) were firmly attached with seat belts, but initially it seemed that we were loose, for everything else: nav bags, sun glasses, dust, gloves were flying 

everywhere. My navbag rested between my neck and the back of my seat. And also was a huge wind sound near by. Immediately, Irajá, the engineer, found the noise source: the front door had opened. Fortunatelly, it opened just two or three inches on its top, 

for it had a safety chain that did not allowed it to open thoroughly. Irajá could shut the door. It was a big scare! 

Today, the flight from Singapore to Medan was uneventful. The Cessna CJ4 is extremely well done. Its FMS is perfect. All its modes function exactly by the book, and the flight model is superb. Pics from the flight:

I have been in Bali for about two weeks in 1996, during an around the world tour, flying a Hawker 800B that started and finished in S Paulo, Brazil. It was an amazing trip decided by my boss, the Hawker owner. We did it flying to the west, so we arrived in Bali from Darwin, Australia and then proceeded to Singpore, Mali in the Maldives and then on to Europe and finally Brazil. Bali is really something to be seen, full with pleasant and gentle people. From Bali I went on the present trip to Dili, Timor Leste capital, to know a country almost on the other side of the world from Brazil, that has the same mother Brazilian language, the portuguese. I continue to use the Boeing 747-8i for this trip, even considering Dili runway length to be short for my airplane performance, just 6,070 ft. See pics:

On Tuesday Jan 25th, in the morning I left DIli, in Timor Leste to Brunei, in Borneo, one of the Malaysian islands. Brunei is a sultanate that is plenty of oil production.

It has about 400,000 people with US$ 27,000 of GDP per capita. One of the highest in the world. People receive their houses from the government.

I changed for a Garuda (Indonesian Airlines) Bombardier CRJ700, made by Aerosoft, very well done aircraft with pratically all systems in nomimal operation.

In Jan 25th afternoon, around 3:30 pm local, I departed Brunei flying a Diamont DA62. Amazing aircraft equipped with two propellers´ engines fueled by the same JP1 kerosene that run the big jet airplanes. That was a 

four hours and twenty min flight to cover the 734 nm between both cities. I finally landed after the sunset at Singapore Changi airport, where the DC6 have been checked during this tour around the Java sea.
