Hey IFC! Today’s topic is on a flight I flew yesterday between 2 of the many U.S. Territories located throughout the Pacific Ocean. I departed American Samoa and flew Northwest towards The Federated States of Micronesia. The flight was very uneventful since it was over the open waters except for the occasional islands and atolls that popped up.
