Cape Town to Los Angeles! 24 Hour Flight!

Hello, IFC,

This morning, I landed what I now consider to be my longest international flight!
I flew from FACT (Cape Town) to KLAX (Los Angeles). I went up north Africa, above Europe, with a quick but painful stop in Frankfurt, then back above northern Canada, Seattle, San Francisco and finally Los Angeles.

This flight was 22 hours of flight and 2 hours and 3 minutes on the ground, making it officially one complete day of Infinite Flight!

Yes, it truly is! My favorite part was eastern angola with all the mountains and rivers running parallel to each other for hundreds of miles in every direction!
