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
