Default Powerful stuff...

I was tracking you and had a big smile on my face as you were approaching your destination. Now I have a big lump in my throat. Great story. Hits home. Wish I could fly with my dad too... I hope you have a great visit and safe passage back home.

Default Paddy Has Landed

Looks like Paddy is back home after his Irish adventure. Two very long days to get home. Three days from Dublin to Chicago area. Most impressive.

Default Back in the US of A!

N415JS arrived home to LL10 near Chicago on Saturday afternoon after a round trip of over 7,000nm. The airplane didn't have a single squawk the entire trip - what a wonderful machine. Thanks Vans!

The last couple of days were long ones, Reykjavic to Iqaluit on Friday and Iqaluit all the way home on Saturday. I learned to make the most of the weather while you have it on a trip like this.

Many thanks to those who have done this before me and been so generous in sharing their wisdom. In particular, I'd like to give a shout out to Herman Schiele who not only talked me through the details of his own crossing, but kept watch over me from the left seat of his 747 when our paths crossed.

Here are some pictures of a most excellent adventure...



Somewhere over the North Atlantic
