Hope it's not a dupe...

For the record, these are not my pictures and I don't know this guy. I found this thread on another forum.

If I just move the beer to the front, that should get the CG back in range

They sure know how to put together a welcoming party in Qatar



On final in Bali

You haven't lived until you've done an oil change on a 140 degree tarmac in Bangladesh



Guatemala



Sicily



Somewhere over Thailand



Departing Bahrain



Bahrain coastline



High-tech aircraft fueling in Bangladesh. Nothing quite like the old 'broom-stick in a tube to get the fuel out of the drum in the back of the pickup truck' trick.



Much higher-tech refueling in Pakistan



Slightly lower-tech refueling in India



Sunset over the Nile



Luxor, Egypt



Sunset over Northern Canada



Greenland







Some 'light rime' over Scotland



A few big boys taking off in Oman



23,000 feet over Denali National Park



It's reassuring to have two PT6 turbines right about now

Group photo in Bangladesh



Although I can't see it, I'm guessing the fire threat level in Goose Bay is low today.



Beautiful day for either ice skating or flying in Goose Bay



"Gander radio, F-GEDX would like to return to the field. We're picking up some 'light' icing in the climb."



Hmmmmm. Don't I subscribe to this channel? Had to reboot the G1000 to get the MFD working again.



Shooting the approach into Narsarsuaq, Greenland



Somewhere over Turkey



Cairo, Egypt



Flying over the Great Pyramids



Colombia



On the ramp in Fujairah



Troyes, France

I think this qualifies as an oversized load



Mt. Shasta



Preparing to taxi



Formation flight climbing out over SoCal



I didn't take this one, but that's me in the lead Otter



This one's actually a few years old, but someone just sent me the link and I like the photo. It's me getting ready to depart from Iceland on a beautiful winter morning.



Thanks for looking!

Wow. A lot of single engine time over water and/or ice - no thanks! I don't even like flying over big lakes.

Great pictures. What an adventure!

Little more info on the aircraft used and ranges with extended tanks maybe?

As in my screen name I have a few miles (mostly all in the US ) in a Long-EZ which can go 1600 st miles at a shot.

Add some extra fuel in the back seat area and you can really get some long range flights.

I just looked at the same pictures on the jet forum.

As many said - Much respect to you for your skills.

As a few said "I want that job" - I bet not many would last very long without having a major problem.

People with your flying skills are few and far between.

For training requirements the FAA defines a Cross Country flight as greater than 50 miles and landing at a different airport.

After departing and returning to Mojave after the around the world non-stop flight Dick Rutan wondered if that qualified as a "Cross Country Flight" Seeing that he did not land at a different airport????

Amazing pictures.

I bet he logged a few hours.

The spectacular and awesome beauty of our planet never ceases to amaze me.

Great pics, thanks for posting them.

great pics

Nice pics overall.

But that one pic is not of Mosul Iraq- been in and out of there at least a few dozen times. Terrain like that in Iraq is a bit further East and North, not to mention the city does not look like that from the air no matter which way you approach it...whether day VFR or on NVGs.

Sorry dude but it's a dupe. I posted it here about a month ago.

Nice pics.

I especially liked the sock reflected on the windscreen!

Very cool pics. Seeing that much ice on an unprotected wing brings back some very unpleasant memories!
