Cold Bay
Monday, 09 July 2007

This was the most critical leg of our flight. Long rage over the Pacific Ocean (2375 miles), Fuel limitation and additional weight was compounded by 4 to 23 knots of head wind. But we pulled back on the power to save fuel, and landed with 1.5 hours of resaved fuel.

We got a little food for our long 2375 mile trip over the Pacific Ocean  


Since we are flying East to West, we are loosing daylight and we have to fly through the night to make it to Alaska.


We left Japan on Sunday at 1:00 pm and flow for 17 hours to get to Cold Bay . We arrived at 12:15 pm on Sunday. Our arrival in Alaska was about an hour earlier than our departure when we left Japan on the same day. It is strange to go back in time and have two Sundays in the same week.     
After flying 17 hours, we were ready to get some food and rest. But there are no restaurant in Cold Bay that has a population of less than 50 

Since there is no restaurant in Cold Bay , the fuel company owner took us to his home and made us a New Orland style dinner.
