Boscombe Down to Petropavlovsk another 4k+ nm trip

Recommended Posts

So, what is there in my hangar that has a range of almost 5000 nautical miles and yet doesn't take all day to get there?

Why the Valkyrie I left at Boscombe of course! :cool: The plan took me out over the North Sea, Denmark, the Baltic skirting northern Russia then dropping down to the Kamchatka Peninsula. The sun didn't set!

 

Evening takeoff, brakes off at about half eight.

ILS approach to 34R in the murk. Good job there's plenty of runway left - she's a tricky bird to land!

It's fun blitzing round the world in 4000nm increments! Thanks.
