My longest flight ever!

Recommended Posts

Sorry to dig up an old thread. Felt like sharing it anyways.

Just touched down in Zurich/Kloten after a 21hour 39minute flight from Auckland/NZ. 

This was only possible with the B77W (almost no pax and no cargo) because of strong tailwinds. The great circle route actually went over Russia, but I went the other way round: Pacific, LAX-VOR, Canada, Frobisher Bay, Greenland, south of Iceland, UK, Belgium and down into Switzerland. 

I actually couldn't compute the flight with PFPX, because it told me "not enough fuel man!" everytime. In the end there were about 5 tons of fuel left. 

Real time. Had the relief crew take over while I had a good night of sleep.
