    I have the baton @ __SAWA__ ...

    ... flying to SCNT, B-50A-5-BO - 'Lucky Lady II' - late, just with a featherweight minimum crew of "WASP's" (), no ammo and only around 1'200 USG fuel.

    Icon22 Baton safe down and free ...

    @ SCNT - proof to follow up,

    superlightly loaded, it was even easy to reach critical altitude and get back down within less than 100 nautical miles. Loaded only to less than 90'000 lbs., the B-50 would have outclimbed many of the earlier WW-2 fighters. I was on altitude at FL300 within less than 35 nautical miles.

    [EDIT] BTW - The Lucky Lady II was the first aircraft to circumnavigate the world non stop ... => http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lucky_Lady_II
