Absolutely superb Paul, I’ve really enjoyed all of these posts and the history/ commentary. :rock:

Now, what are the plans for the journey back?

I’m thinking 146 or possibly the updated BN2 when it comes out. :cheers:

Thanks, Ben. :cheers:

Thanks, Brian :cheers:

I'm going to carry on eastwards and make it a round-the-world trip. That'll mean heading up north to cross the Pacific via Japan, the Kuriles, Kamchatka, Aleutians and Alaska. Same aircraft too. I've got to get G-OPVK back to Mildenhall, as I told the bloke I was only borrowing it for a few days. :lol:

An excellent series, Paul :thumbsup:

You made it to Melbourne, hope that the barbie was lit and there were a few 'cold ones' to welcome you.

Thanks, Kevin ...yes, as long as it wasn't Fosters. I'd have turned round and gone home otherwise. :lol:

Thanks both. :cheers:

I don't think I'll be documenting the return journey in quite so much detail. It'll be more like a few 'postcards' from the flights over the Philippines, some snaps from Japan etc.
