    Wingman down at SAZN.

    Winds got pretty shifty and had to back off to keep from overspeeding.

    I knew there was a good reason for keeping FS9 on the laptop.
    Smooth flight, late at night. All lovely until the cloud and fog for the last 10 miles over a dark jungle.. sure... normal.
    Nice feeling to have something working.
    That is exactly why I use FS9 for the race. :-) There are more than enough gotchas to get ya anyway; why not eliminate what you can.

    Ahh! "get-home-itis' gets a gotcha...

    SAVC-SCGZ
    Summary: (from Milton's Duenna)
    Direct distance: 547.9 nm
    but wasn't there a 500nm distance limit? but wait.. what about that wildcard that Dave granted us? well, OK, but then it wasn't 'declared' for this leg. Hmmm..

    Hi MD. :-)

    Do you mean the F4U? Your speed/time was 50 knots slower and 11 minutes longer than the F7F-1.

    We had a good tail wind over 55 knots most of the way; it should have been faster.

    My avg GS was 405 versus yours at 357, and 11 minutes is a lot longer on a short flight (that's 10 hours longer in a 36 leg race). The F4U is not a contender and should not be used. The old F7F-300 we used to fly should not be used (use the newer F7F-1 version instead).
