“Squawk ident,” you ask? Well, at 3:35 GMT we arrived in Iceland after a flight over the southern tip of Greenland and then the North Atlantic’s white-capped waters, a deep and shining blue. An incredible flight, Ras bringing the Twin Beech through the clear arctic air with his usual aplomb. Landing in Reykjavik felt as if we were coming back to the crowds after the open frontiers of Greenland. I, for one, am thanking Mother Nature for the storm off the east coast that has given us an extra day of flying in this plane, an experience affecting both heart and soul that words and pictures do not do justice to, no matter how diligent the effort. And now we are a day late for the air show in Stauning. They must wait for us as the Twin Beech has come a long way and deserves her day in the spotlight!

Ellie, I have only just been able to access your blog since day one due to Internet challenges but am looking forward (now that I've copied it to my laptop) to reading it over dinner tonight. I can't wait to hear about your exploits in person, if we manage to hook up first week of August. Happy Adventuring!
