Around the world in Cessna 182

June 07, 2004
Kupang, Indonesia (WRKK) to Darwin, Australia (YPDN)

Today I had another long and boring flight over the ocean (well Timor Sea). The flight from Kupang to Darwin took a bit longer than I expected due to heavy headwind. I've been flying against the headwind for the last few days so I guess I should not be surprised. At least this time the distance was much shorter than yesterday and I was not doing any sightseeing, so the fuel was not a problem.

YACY or yet another continent, yawn. Actually I am not yawning, it is very exciting to visit Australia even virtually. I hope to be able to visit there in flesh some time soon. Who knows, maybe one of these years.

The flight itself was really super boring though, almost 5 hours over the big blue. I was at 7,500 ft. following the heading of 105. The approach and landing were uneventful. I parked the plane at the airport and went on to make this web page.
