So jealous. I grew up/learned to fly not to far from where you took of (Schwaebisch Hall) and flying back there in my RV-8 from where I live now (NJ/USA) is still on my bucket list ... .

Best of luck!

I was grounded yesterday because the airports in Greenland are closed Sundays. I enjoyed the landscape and relaxed a bit. Today the weather was still perfect for flying and I had a spectacular departure at Kulusuk and couldnt resist to stay low for a few minutes for sightseeing. I dont find words to describe what I saw but I show you some pics I made this morning. The ice-cap and west coast where I flew is not as breathtaking as the area around Kulusuk.
The forecast for Iqualit was not so good for the last hour of flight but I didnt see a single cloud and again had perfect flying conditions.








Right base for Rwy 09 at Kangerlussuaq BGSF

I have a 10 Gal Tank installed in the rear baggage area. Although stock fuel would work this makes for relaxed planning. Wind is not so decisive and alternate planning is easier. I miss the baggage space however.

Go Herman, I'll follow your track. See you, you'll have a lot of story to tell us in Europe when back.

Say Hi to the Oshkosh Van's friends.

Hi Herman, looks like your making great progress.

When you land at CYAM tell the ground controller you want to taxi to the T-hangars, ask for directions they will point you in the right direction. When your taxiing into the T hangar taxiway turn left and taxi down between the first and second blue buildings. Im the last hangar on the right.

If you can give me a heads up I can meet you there.


Terry
