Around the world in Cessna 182

February 19, 2004
Oshakati, Namibia (FYOS) to Windhoek, Namibia (FYWH)

Apparently, the people of Oshakati do not pay their electricity bills as the airport was in total darkness. Not that there was much of an airport there anyway. All I saw was a runway and that was it. There is an image of the Oshakati airport nothingness during my approach from yesterday. I am actually sure that the real Oshakati airport has at least a building of some sort. OK, after a brief Google search I found out that the actual airport does look much like the one in the FS2004 (there is nothing there to see).

That aside, I have created my flight plan to fly from Oshakati to Windhoek, the capital of Namibia. I bet they will have their lights on. I am still flying over the highlands of the South African continent, so I had to stay above 9,000 ft. The heading of 174 was a direct route from to Windhoek, so that is what the autopilot was following. I only intervened during the takeoff and landing both of which of course were manual. Again, there was little to see on my way there, so I have very few screen shots to show.

Be that as it may, I am making much better progress now and that is very good. For a while I really thought it will take me over a year to complete this adventure.
