I’m in the middle of attempting my longest flight to date and took off from Reunion Island with about an hour of reserve fuel. But now I’ve hit some pretty nasty headwinds over Northern Africa and am looking for some help from some of you currently over the Atlantic, whether that be central or northern. As it stands now, I’m running out of fuel 2 hours before I’m supposed to land in Phoenix. I’ve gone up to 35,000 and down to 28,000 and I’m having no luck with the wind. I know as the aircraft gets lighter, the power will come back and I will gain some endurance, but I’m asking for some immediate info about those winds.
The original flight plan was 21 hours, but now it’s creeping up on 24 hours.
