Well, actually it's the time between the posts that gives the time of the leg, so you were really 8 minutes over the time limit

Baton back at EGQK.I have no idea what happened. Plane became uncontrollable and was not responding to commands. Autopilot wasn't fuctioning and then out of nowhere it overstressed. Gonna have to investigate this, not what you want happening in the middle of the real thing.

Good luck Gary , may the winds be with you . though i suspect they will not :( If it`s Mr Copleys fine P-38 L then I am sure you will enjoy ;) remember to have an alternative airport if you dont think you will crack 2 hours ;) . It is good practice to divert rather than face the huge penalties for exceeding 2 hours :) Have fun

I did not know you could land anyplace but the destination airport I had to use my Southwest B737-700 Shamu But I see I did not make the 2 hour time limit I used FL115 or 11,500 feet which is better for speed high or low I cranked this thing up to 320 IAS just below over speed. Is there going to be a max altitude for these legs or is it up to each pilot.

Hi Gary , You can land anywhere you like :) providing you use the correct aircraft type for the leg , you do not exceed 700 miles , and try not to exceed 2hrs ;) As the Baton holder , you have the final say on where you land :) Is all good practise and you flew a good leg . During the race there will be many colleagues online to assist the Baton Pilot , ie routes , aircraft, weather etc but at this time is just a bit of Practise . Nice work :)

There is no altitude limit, you can fly at whatever altitude you like :(A few years ago there was a limit of 8500' (IIRC) for flights started in the eastern hemisphere, but that was just a special rule for that year. There will probably not be such an altitude restriction again, since it slowed the race down a lot. We were racing 24 hours a day from Sunday to Saturday, which was a lot of hard work for everyone. It could be interesting with an altitude limit in a smaller area, say through some mountainous region.

That leg may have been a tad long for the race. You exceeded the 2 hour time limit.

I have wing - probably wouldn't count because of last crash -- doin it anyway. I'll have to look at the '08 rules.

I think , because you did not hand off the Baton free at BIPA , but relinquished the Baton , it is okay for you fly as wing or Baton for this leg , Someone much smarter than me can clarify this ;) hehe In fact you can restart as baton holder as the penalty is having to restart in the first place ;)

Baton is free at CYRT this does not really count as buzz has just taken off from BIPA in a Connie , So you can treat as a wing leg if you like but it is a long ole flight so if you wish to push the baton on then :)

I think you can do pretty much anything as long as you don't move the baton along two times in a row. So if you, for any reason, hand over or relinquish the baton, you can fly the next leg as lead or wing if you like.

I was just testing the Connie but then found out that I was to leave the house and accompany the wife on some errands. I think I ran out of fuel. I had not instructed the Flight Engineer to take care of leaning the mixture at altitude and left it full throttle. When I got home Duenna showed crashed.
