Thanks Pete...I doubted my airplane choice a few times along the way but all in all I am glad I took the Focke Wulf 200. It forced a bit more planning and thought along the way.

Plus I think setting her role in WW2 aside it was a mile stone aircraft well worth taking on a special trip.

Finally finished. Ended up finishing in the dark again. Didn't get started until late. Probably nothing to see but ice anyway. Laughing

Must have done something wrong estimating my fuel though. Ended up using only half of the capacity. I guess I'm not very good at this. Embarassed

Congrats on finishing....and we'll blame that extra fuel on a stronger than forecast tailwind.
I had the opposite on one of the legs and made it in with the FW200 on much less fuel than I like and planned for. That's much worse Laughing Laughing
