Default KSSF to KLEX

Had the great joy of an average tailwind of 34kt on our return flight from Stinson field in San Antonio to Lexington in KY past Monday. Started of with GS of 195 with increasing winds nearer home with GS to 217. Did about 875NM in 4h26min
Here is a link to my track in FlightAware: https://uk.flightaware.com/live/flight/N245JM

Some compensation for my flight there on Friday against similar winds!!

Congrats!! Now clean your EFIS screen.

As of now I'm in the 186-kt club with my -9A. One of these days I'll find the perfect tailwind.
