Bill is in Jakarta!

Updated: Jan 4, 2020

Nothing quite like a couple of turns in holding after 32 hours of flight! Bill took off at 8:25am Hawaii time on Monday, crossed the international date line and landed on Wednesday at 9:25am Western Indonesian time. We were fortunate to have favorable weather for the entire flight. Tom, a fellow @lancair_international owner, helped change 6ZQ’s oil in HNL, so Bill only needs fuel and sleep in Jakarta.

The flight to Capetown is almost as long, another 29+ hours, and he’ll depart when he’s rested. We will update when we have a departure time. Thanks for following along this great adventure!
