Departed in windy conditions full of fuel 34.900 tonnes max for Samoa, no need for a tech fuel stop in Tahiti. Good less work for us.
We have a 8 hour plus flight to Samoa plus a/c prep and will only be on the ground for about 16 hours max, so basically a min rest stop over then onto Cairns.
Just resting two lectures down - Jack Dalton on Samoan Culture and Robbie Louis Stephenson, buried on Samoa and the Dr Susan Anderson, on Travel health. She has done 23 paid expedition trips at $50000 each, not bad work if can get it!
A long flight fly over Tahiti got a picture. Problems suspect frozen back galley water pipes, shut off half closed restrict flow freeze?
Arrived finally into Samoa and met by the biggest Square Port Health Official! They do have big guys here very hot hit and humid.
Just heard world news about a hot air ballon accident in Luxor so that's that cancelled!
Had to return to the locked up plane as Richard left my case on board! Thanks pal! Staying at the Aggies Grey Hotel for about 11 hours - so it's sleep try at least, run, breakfast then back to Dora! Hello and Goodbye Samoa!!
