Circumnavigation of Africa

In a few minutes I will be taking off from Melilla (GEML) airport in North Africa headed to Tangier to complete my circumnavigation of the African continent. I left Tangier (GMTT) on July 3 and flying south along the west coast of Africa. The total flight distance around Africa, following the coastlines, was 1282 nM, and total flight time was 87 hours and 30 minutes, landing at 90 different airports. All flights were in GA aircraft and individual flights averaged 58 minutes duration.

The correct milage was 12982 nM. I dropped a digit when I typed it before.
