I’m flying DC-3/C-47 on a multi-leg route based on Jules Verne’s novel, Around The World In 80 Days. I have arrived at North America today. It was a long flight, planned as 3:45 hrs, but took 4:19 hrs due to headwind. Now it’s time to drink coffee and chat with USAF guys working at the base (Shemya, AK). London seems so far away from here.
