Bora Bora Hop Hop!

🏖️ Bora-Bora Hop-Hop! 🏖️

Little Background

As today is a GA day with Pacific as today’s highlight, me and my friend (@CptJu) decided to recreate a short island hop in formation from the quiet Bora-Bora to the busy Papeete, capital of Tahiti. We flew this island hop with a Daher TBM-930 with @Jan_W controlling Bora-bora at that time. It didn’t take long until we took off and left the island of Bora Bora. After a short 45 minute journey, we were vectored by @Maxim with a view of Tahiti island with @Babacar controlling TGS. All in all, we spent around 1:35 minutes from NTTB’s parking to NTAA’s parking. Thanks to all IFATCs who work hard today controlling traffic around Polynesia and Thanks to Tyler for featuring the Pacific today 😊👍
