Leg 104: Zurich (LSZH) to Ruzyne (LKPR)

Recommended Posts

:thum:

I'm terribly sorry for the long delays and countless unplanned events that have happened around this flight, but I finally got some spare time on my hands and got an early flight to Zurich to meet up with Phil who, I believe, has had him and the baton booked into a city hotel in Zurich for nearly 3 weeks. Thanks Phil! :thum:

So with the baton in my pocket I set off to the terminal to sort out an aircraft. After waiting at Customer Services for three hours, I received a signed confirmation from Swiss's cheif executive allowing me to continue the Around the World Challenge to Prague in a Swiss Saab 200. :clap:

Our starting location:

9:50am. Il fait Mauvais. With the baton relaxing in First Class, I got to work in the cockpit and received the pushback clearance.

We're cleared for taxi to the active, but due to a terminal inspection, we have to take the long way round.

10:18am. still Il fait Mauvais. We're cleared for takeoff! :clap:

We're in for a treat here! Turning towards our cruise heading.

13 000ft and we're finally out of that murk! The Alps in the distance (I think) :?:

For some reason an easyjet A319 is cleared for takeoff as I'm cleared to land! I'd better be quick off the runway!

11:55am. Il fait beau! Down safely - Welcome to Ruzyne. Compliments to reef for providing the grass.

Unfortunately, this is my last flight onboard the ATWC. :sad: I hope you have enjoyed this flight (and my other two flights) and I wish the following 13 flights (now only 8) the best of luck! We must keep that baton safe!

I appreciate all your patience!

Best Regards,

George : Tap

Brilliant post George :clap:

Some great editing, there's one angle in there I had not seen before that had me almost standing on my head to view :thum:

Well worth the wait and thanks for taking time out to catch up with us.

As I have mentioned previously we are hoping to get another challenge off the ground, still no idea yet but the Mods have been coming up with some great ideas. If anyone wants to make any suggestions then please PM or mail me.

Cheers

If you all look in the screenshots section, you will find why I'm late replieing!
