At 19:00 Zulu I will be taking off from Provideniya Bay (UHMD) airport in Chokot, Russia to cross the Bering Straight, completing my tour of the coastlines of the Old World and landing at Wales, Alaska (PAIW) to return to the New World. The tour started in Tangier (GMTT) on July 3, 2019 and went around the African continent, then around the Mediterranean Sea, down the Red Sea, along the coasts of the Arabian Peninsula, India, Southeast Asia, China, and finally up the eastern coast of Russia. The maps below show the route. The total flight distance was 34547 nM, and total flight time was 220 hours and 45 minutes, landing at 237 different airports. All flights were in GA aircraft. From Alaska I will begin my next journey along the “backbone of the Americas”, the mountain ranges that run from British Columbia to Tierra de Fuego. Maybe I will see you along the way.
#1 Route around Africa and Mediterranean Sea.
