The first time I was made aware of this is when an Aussie friend of mine in Korea asked if I would like to stop for a "brew" at their HQ in Seoul. Being a confirmed beer drinker I said sure. Surprise!!It was tea and very good it was. We have been out of touch for most of 50 years but if any of you gentlemen from down under know a former WOJG named Bill Burke, I would like to get in touch. Doug Young dyoung@pennswoods.net

Well It wasn't as long as my first flight but I am now out of California and in Nevada! Had navigate through some restricted areas, one millitary the other not. I think I crossed into the civilian restricted zone ( naughty naughty :_-) ) At Fallon, I had my best approach yet! My final was abit low, but I compincated for that. Once on the ground though, I was told to contact groud at 0.00. Is that right? I think it's a bug but I don't know. And lastly, Steve, What is a Butty?

A sandwich hmn? Sound neat, I think I will use that!What airport shall I stop at near you? EGLL is fine with me but If there is a closer airport that I can stop at I am fine with that. Pluse, it's nice to stop at an uncontrolled airport every once in awhile.The sooner I know the sooner I can adjust my flight plan.Keep FLYing!

Hi :-waveIf you want to have a break in Scotland, I populated EGPE Inverness Airport (Click on the link "My United Kingdom Scenery" Below)I live less than 10nm from EGNR Hawarden Airport(Pron Harden, Link Below)Then you could fly down to EGMD Lydd (Pron Lid, Link Below) which is on the south coast of the UK and a short flight to France, Belgium, Or Holland.Just a tip, if you have a fast internet connection download Paul Brooks scenery of the UK its stunning.Steve.http://mysite.freeserve.com/fly2theuk/aragon.JPG][/divMy United Kingdom Scenery.http://library.avsim.net/search.php?CatID=...&Go=Change+View

You may be able to use Vatsim and SquawkBox for FLy to see each other and talk to each other. I will try to reach in Italy. Hope you know how to use the program. Or perhaps we can use Roger Wilco....tony

Oh, wish I could. But if I am not mistaken, Vatsim and Squak box are PC only, I have a Mac ( and a proud mac owner might I add :-) ). I think Rodger wilco is too.If not, Great! Would love to see you in the air!

I must say, I did'nt think that these flights would go by so quickly! But, I am now at Elko rgnl Nevada! I had a decent landing and not too much trouble along the way. Had to change my crusing alt from Depature's sugested 8000 to 10,000 to avoid the Stalewater(?) mountain range. On to Utah next. At Michael AAFBy the way, does anybody know what AAF stands for?

Well, I am not sure If I can say I finished the Utah leg because I had a less then gracefull landing roll. Several obsticuls presented them selevs, the most principul of which was the Controll Tower!!! I ran into the Conrtoll Tower which was is th middle of the runway! I am thinking of calling it a landing but noting that I ran into "substatial problems"On the bright side I prefored this flight at night! My first IFR flight! If anyone has any opinions as to wheather I should do the flight over or just say I landed will be very apreciated!Keep Flying!

I competed the fith leg of my around-the-world journey! Michael FLD presented a challanging take off with it's inconvienently placed tower. But in all, it was not too bad. This has aslo been my longest leg yet! 200+nm! I covered more ground today then anyother so far. Of cource it will be nothing like the 20th leg, Goose bay Canada to Greenland! That will be long!Hope to post more progress soon!

I have just anded in Cheyenne Wyoming! Another 200+ nm. flight but it pushed me over the Rocky mountains.I have become very acuainted with the PC-12 by now, and have come to appreciate all of the labor-saving-devices onbord.This will be my tenth day of flight, and I have compleated six legs! hopefully I will land back in SFO before two months are out. Next stop, South Dakota!

Hello everyone! I finshed my seventh leg today, I now am parked on the Rapid City rgnl tarmac. The flight covered 190nm., not as bad as my last two but not short either.I have a question which mainly pertains to the forum and not so much to Fly! or flight. Should I be starting a new thread to post my prgress? If I continue to use this one, It will be rediculously long. I don't wwant to start a new thread each time I post either, any sugestions?
