I passed a TZ on Leg 2.   That was quick.  I was some what confused what I worked out the flight was 2 minutes long 🙂  I guess I should be logging these in UTC.

I flew these 2 legs  back to back as you can see All the Islands I landed on are part of the Comoros Islands.

After playing with ASX I’ve calmed the Turbulance and windsheer down a little.  No more 90degree rolls.

RW Views of the Islands of Mayotte FMCK and Grande Comore FMCH.  There are no pictures available of Anjouan and Moheli Islands.

Moroni (in Arabic موروني Mūrūnī) is the largest city of the Comoros islands and since 1958 has served as its capital. In Cormorian, Moroni translates as “in the heart of the fire”, perhaps alluding to the city’s proximity to Mount Karthala.

All flights were easy with no problems.

The DC3 is performing well with the locally born Co-Pilot and engineer performing well.  I did have a worry about the Engineer being what appears to be about 80.  He sleeps constantly,  but does what needs doing when he’s awake.
