Looks great, Roger.

Now, this is not for everyone.

I've compiled a small "Kokoda Track Resources" sheet with URL references. Some videos of Twin Otter flights into a number of our now-familiar PNG airports...from Tapini to Efogi. Then a website, an interesting article, and an amateur video that describe the contemporary Kokoda Track environment. And finally, a page of references to some historic newsreels, and a long documentary, about the 1942 Kokoda Track Campaign that has become a defining moment for Australians. The reference sheet is available here.

PS. As a backup, in case of dismal weather, we can readily use Friday October 19, 2018 at 1800 UTC. Some clouds but mostly clear enough in the critical areas along the Kokoda Track.

PS2. Andrew Crowley did a set of AFCADS for the Kukoda Track airstrips. You might find these handy if you want to place your aircraft at one of these fields...say after a computer crash or some such. Quick, easy install. Available at the AVSIM library here. (I'm using this one.)

Alternatively, Matt Levi has done the same. He adds helicopter pads. Different, but also at the AVSIM library here.

Roger,
  Thanks for another great flight! But i digress... Next time let's fly to places with just a bit more ramp space!

Mike,
 You too! Thanks for the flight supplement.. A little late getting to it, but it was good watching the videos in lieu of parts of the Brewer game ( & commercials! ) last night.. :wacko: :takut: :sedih:  

Some screenshots of the fun flight are here..
Will have to pull this one off again during the morning coffee some day.
Flight plan folded up in the back pocket for such an occasion! LOL
