Skimmed through the site, and the photo for sponsor page sure looks like my home airport of Page Arizona. Sounds like a great experience. WOW.

Default John in Italy

I had the opportunity to meet John in LIPB (Bolzano) where I was with my RV-8 for helping him for custom documents.

Then we flew together to my home base (LIDT) where he spent a couple of days to change oil, filter and fixing some little issues in our team hangar.

It was a great experience to know a man who does the world flight in an RV.

Today he took off @ 09:45 local time and now he has arrived in Crete (Greek)

Follow his trip (https://memoryflightrtw.weebly.com/tracking.html), he's a good person and I hope you have the fortune to meet him during his adventure.

Here are some photos and a little simple video I took during the escort flight from LIPB to LIDT.

Default RTW trip - New Blog Entries

VAF,

I am stuck in Karachi, Pakistan waiting for a weather window to open to Sri Lanka. The monsoon season just started, so I have to be careful with the routing over India.

New posts have been added to to my web site/blog:

- England and IWM Duxford
- Icing over the Alps
- Electrical Disaster and Recovery

www.memoryflightrtw.weebly.com

I hope everyone had a great 4th of July back in the USA.


John

An amazing trip for sure. I've been checking your progress every couple days and I'm jealous I'm not flying along with you!

Looks like that last flight was an attempt to cross India? Was there weather?

From a facebook post by his support agents:

His intentions today were to fly from Karachi in his homebuilt Vans RV-9A all the way to Sri Lankabut we have just heard he is diverting to Ahmedabad in India because of bad weather ahead.

John is in Sri Lanka now, getting some beach time before his next leg to Kuala Lumpur. He seems to be in good spirits and eager to carry on.
