Hi all!

Welcome to this adventure. The title may not seem much, but when you plan to fly to the UK going west. Yep, west! So that's the Atlantic and Pacific oceans, continental America and Asia to fly over, all before flying across the North Sea!

So, to start off, we 'borrowed' a Korean Air A380, to fly us from Dublin to Boston Logan. Here she is at the gate


Pushing back



Taxying out, but with a Ryanair 737 in front!


And behind!


A view from the office


Tracking down 16 - ATC quite stupidly told me to take off from the second-shortest runway at Dublin, and all the heavies take off from



Turning onto 28


Powering up




Gear up!



Gear fully closed, bye bye Dublin!


Beautiful sunrise


My house is somewhere down there (I think)


Still climbing



Now settled into the cruise as we cross the west coast


Streaking away


Coming into American airspace now


Going down


All too soon the gear comes down over New York


Airport in sight


And from the pit




Full reverse and brakes


Taxying to the gate


Racing a 757 from United into the gate


Here's ours




And parked up, all nice and relaxed


Thanks for viewing. Leg 2 has been done, just need to find the time to write it up!
