BMaxHistoricRt: Across The Pacific the Old Fashion Way…
MaxSez: Here’s another Historic Route, parts of it where blazed by PanAm in the 30’s by Clipper, Earheart and her Electra are out there somewhere. If your into history you’ll recognize Midway & Wake Islands of WWll fame. Anderson AFB, Guam, the present home of US Strategic Bombers presence in the Pacific (B-52/B-1 at times) from which “Arc Light” Strike packages into NVN and the present show of force near NK originate(ed) and finally Kadena AFB, Okinawa, Jp, the Key Stone of the Pacific and the Jump off bastion for SE Asian US Military Air Ops in the region.
I flew this trip In “Fat Albert” and broke it down by day trip so I could linger and explore the Island hopping WWII campaigns of the Navy/Marines in the central Pacific.
You can start this Trip from almost any “B” aerodrome on the West Coast, the only long Haul is the Honolulu leg. If you utilize a Hawaii start you can make it all the way by Caravan with a few diversion or by Citation following the basic plan. (Gotta give great credit to the Airport Editors. The Pacific is a big place but some of the most obscure out of the way airports in the Marshall Islands and RimPac Island chains are plotted accurately as extrapolating from a WAC Chart, Well Done Gang!).
Here’s the Basic FltPlan, select your own diversions to areas of interest if your a WWII Buff or an old China/SEA Hands
FltPlan: >KSEA PHNL PMDY PWAK PGUA RODN<
