Has anybody beat me to the punch?

I’m flying at 184 degrees in a circumnavigational flight of the IF world, and people have been wondering about it, but have you actually been doing it? I saw about 24 hours ago a guy with a callsign of Speedbird 691 starting to leave the Caribbean, and a few hours ago, he was still flying, but I doubt he made it back to the Caribbean.

ABOUT MY FLIGHT: I took off around 5:20 PM EDT time today out of OXC in NY region, and two hours later, I’m almost over the Dominican Republic. If you’d like to give suggestions on when I might land, it’d be a pleasure.

very easily…

Just keep going out and follow your progress in Live Flight. I could fly from Amsterdam to Paris!

I’m asking if anybody beat me, not how I flew out of the region. If you’d like to track my flight, I’m easy to find, because I’m in Antarctica.

I’m gonna eventually probably either fly up Asia and across the North Pole or I’m gonna end up turning around and back to New York. It’s circumnavigational, no stops until I’m back to OXC airport. I’m gonna see for sake of community if this trip is possible.

I don’t need an escort, I took off in the NY region, and I’m planning to land in the NY region. I’m hoping to see the region just as it was when I took off, looking at my plane from each airport I passed. Thanks for wanting to help, but I don’t need an escort. My ETA won’t be soon. I’m thinking in EDT time it’ll be around 7-9 am.

Are you staying awake for the whole flight? Remember tomorrow is Monday! Lol

No, I’ve slept during the flight, and I’m available tomorrow, and my flight is going to make it later than we thought, @hubandspoke1.

I must ask… what’s with the little loop as you departed from the antarctic coast?

It’s a pretty long story. It started out with when I woke up at 6:45 am EDT, my plane had magically turned it’s way away from Anarctica. Then I was loosing control, and realized that if I wanted to head into the right direction, I needed to use true north direction instead of magnetic north direction, so my plane was turning a lot, but it’s back on track now.

Thank god you didn’t actually stay awake long enough to do that whole flight :joy:

Well, I knew I would have to sleep in between, but I thought I’d be done today, but because I have to go back north to the Arctic instead of the plane flying over Antarctica and then circling around Asia into the North Pole, and back to NY, like I’d planned to, I have to head up north at eastern Europe and back to New York that way so I’d land in the same direction I took off in.
