No, I'll let it slide since it was the first time, and I've also talked to him both during and after the flight about it. He either made the flight or it's a bigger snow job than is being pulled on New York right now.Keep the baton going guys!!!!

FYI for everyone, I spent about 20 minutes checking distances between the continents. The longest distance required to be flown should be 1013nm between two islands south of the equator in the Atlantic. Team Flightsim.com still has to travel to South America. Also, making a landing in Antartica shouldn't be so hard.Paul Meyer - Morris, C09status.php?id=810173&indicator=OD1&a=a.jhttp://www.flightsimnetwork.com/dcforum/Us...7b45404593a.jpg

All,Since the guys have started westward, we might want to pick a route that crosses the Aleutians to Kamchatka, down to Australia's Darwin, west to Singapore and India, the Middle East (careful!) and Greece. Then cross Africa for the Atlantic jump suggested by Paul. Then up the coast of South America and due north to Boston.This suggestion is if we are trying to get a "shortish" route. Antarctic is a very long ways away...Another alternative would be head due south from Denver to catch South America. Then proceed eastward over the South Atlantic and reverse the route through Africa, Greece, India, Australia and so on.Any thoughts about planning? Anyone?Best,Mike MacKuen

Pirep:KDVN- KLBFLeg: 3 (I guess)Equipment:Vought (Default)Flight Time:1:47 estFuel Used:232 US galsWX: Started off OVC down low Then about an hour into the flight became CLR landing with a few SCT. Maintained a light headwind the entire flight.ALT: climbed to 12K then went up to 16.3KRemarks: Really didn't plan for the trip just tring to keep the race going. Started out thinking of using the Mustang but couldnt get a long distance haul out of it so instead loaded up the Vought. Didn't have Comm or GPS or Navaids So I used the shift+Z key and used sections and Flight Guides to get around with the provided Lat, Long, Alt, Hdg, Airspeed. For some reason my Force Feedback MS Joystick rattled the entire time?! It was like flying while holding onto a power tool the entire flight! I disconnected the power to make it go away.Kilstorm McBride

Congratulations on reviving the race! I'm sure you will give us at flightsim at the very least a run for our money.FYI:We are asking both forums to stay out of the restricted airspace over Iraq and China to make this as real as possible.Regards-
