Thanks for watching the screenies and following my tour. And many more thanks for creating this scenery details!

Wow Gerold.. You really gave this last leg "the works". Fabulous mate. and finding the crash at the Poatina turnoff.. I had totally forgotten about that. Well done old lad, I think I got as much pleasure out of reading about these flights as you obviously did out of flying them. Teecee.

Thanks, Terry - it was great fun to fly this tour and to combine your hints with Wikipedia and my own memories. That is a nice way to (re-)discover places!
