Finally completed my first round the world, used Dave Blakes routes but went easterly, ksfo - kstl - katl - ktpa - tjsj - ebbr - wsss - yssy - ksfo, 22,378 miles in 50.8 hrs.

Well, I've gone and done it a second time now. I only managed one flight per month, so it was like taking a slow boat to China, but I got 'er done.

KSFO-KTPA, 14FEB2010, 4.7hrs, 2157nm
KTPA-EBBR, 01MAR2010, 8.8hrs, 4138nm
EBBR-WSSS, 22APR2010, 11.9hrs, 5813nm
WSSS-YSSY, 23MAY2010, 7.8hrs, 3533nm
YSSY-KSFO, 19JUN2010, 14.1hrs, 6647nm

Totals - 47.3hrs, 22288nm

Whew. Ready to go back to 737 flying out of KSFO.

Some of the flights listed here are not available anymore. Any suggestions? I'll try to work on a new group of flights to go around the world
