Bee ? Mew ? Bee ? Mew ? ...
Selection of plane really was a hard choice.
After all the adventures we've been through together it almost feels like cheating on my dear (if sometimes temperamental) Bee.
But first thing I had to do when learning about the upcoming race to cape town was to get Alex Henshaw's "The flight of the Mew Gull" (and Victor Smith's Open cockpit over Africa).
DR'ing in 39 hours from London to Cape Town in one rush, and back, fastest ever, through day and night, thunderstorms, clouds, fatigue, horrific airstrips, over deserts and jungle.
What an amazing feat of skill and endurance!
So I've finally settled on flying the Percival Mew gull by Oldliner52 (Michel Migaud).
And she's a beautiful girl as well. Now let's see how she flies.
Taking off from Hammerfest for Mo i Rana.
Don't wait for me with the party. I'm taking my time. I'll probably take a few months or more.
Btw, using ASV6.5 for weather.
