Around the world in Cessna 182

February 21, 2004
Alexander Bay, South Africa (FAAB) to Cape Town, South Africa (FACT)

This time I am starting my flight during the day. It is Saturday and I started early am Salt Lake City time.

The airport at Aleksander bay is consisting only of a runway, weather station and a tower, at least in FS2004. I quickly created the VFR flight plan, got clearance and took off. Since the almost the whole flight was over the Ocean, I was able to stay relatively low (7,500 ft.). Today's flight was almost directly South, I was following the heading of 200.

There are few screen shots that I have included this time, one of South African countryside and one of the coastline.

The approach to Cape Town International airport was really easy, I used the ILS approach to the runway 19. There was some traffic, but the weather was perfect. Finally, after long time I came to a big modern airport. That was a nice change.

I got there just in time before the sunset. Now I can rest and continue my trip with the first light next morning.
