    Have baton. BGJN - CYVM. Default FSX King Air 350. FXRealWeatherPro. This fills "2nd flight default AC" requirement. Provided I turn to "on" all the switches labeled "ice", that is...

    Aborting flight. I read the last leg post wrong. The word "not" went in one eye and out the other. Baton back at BGJN. I completed the flight and had the baton FedEx'd back to BGJN so Milton could take it north-ish.

    Couldn't you have just changed destination airport?

    Baton back to BGJN on crash.

    Hit tail wheel and empennage on ridge on approach in fog and snow. Lost tail feathers control. Wrestled for 5 minutes but was unable to get it stable enough to land.

    Bad luck Milton.

    Given that you "crashed on landing", and Duenna shows CYCY, I suggest we invoke rule 9(d), meaning I can take the baton from CYCY after 15 minutes (1745 UTC). North 70 requirement met.

    I'm just warming up the engines on my favourite B727-200, which I haven't flown in a while. Time to head south.

    Good idea. Hope you are light; short runway. :-)

    On approach to CYCY, there is a slight hill that if you follow VASI lights you will strike on medium final. There's small hills on both approaches not easily seen in fog and snow since they are white covered in snow.

    I did land with tail in ground but took off again trying to save it. In hind sight, I would not do that in the race as its a waste of time.

    Just to make sure I'm headed the right way: The next leg should be South to SSW-ish, yes?

    Suggest CYZV or CZBF.

    I was considering a thoroughbred to CYHZ. We did want to run TB legs, no?
    Having said that, a "default plane" to CYZV would be perfect, say in a C208.
    Those are my current ideas. Any input? I sure appreciate the help.

    I was thinking CZBF or CYCH. That would give us a wildcard leg to TXKF and then another wildcard leg from there would get us to the Caribbean.

    Mostly depends on the 'longer' scheme - trying to get hops thru Bermuda and into the Caribbean, or down the coast and through Florida. http://www.gcmap.com/mapui?P=cykl-SCGZ
    CYZV fits the former but from the general look of the weather you might need an approach aid of some sort so further might be better.
    The overland route leads to CYBG (CFB Bagotville) if you don't mind tangling with CF-18s and sharing an ILS to an 11,000 foot runway. Interesting little museum at Bagtown too.

    Well, anyway, I have the baton at CYKL, heading to CYHZ in the Alpha F-80 Thoroughbred. FSRWX
    Pat☺

    EDIT: Sorry, I already went..
    The CYBG sounds awesome though. When I was in Yuma I flew a Tomahawk trying to get my licence again, and I loved sharing with Kfir's Harriers and '18's at MCAS Yuma...

    Distance from CYKL to CYHZ is over 600 NM. Normal legs are limited to 500 NM. Is this a wildcard leg?
