Hello again, and welcome to Where In The World #51. Last month we flew ENE from Shanghia and arrived at an airport that was recently underwater. That is of course Sendai, Japan, scene of the tsunami and eathquake that devestated the area completely washing away entire aircraft.
We had a total of 53 entries and here is everyone who took a guess, with a note that only 4 missed it, but everyone entering is a winner.

OK, now for Where In The World #51. I hope this is a puzzler for you all. It will not require a lot of navigation, but you will need the right aircraft to do it in. So there is a bonus for those who can tell me what aircraft needs to be used to fly it and why?
Depart Sendai Airport and head 180.1 degrees. It's a very long flight at the top of the range of the aircraft needed and you will cross the equator to get there. This flight needs to be made non-stop and the aircraft used must be able to take off and land at the destination, I hope nobody gets the blues or a sinking feeling and gives up... So where are we and what aircraft choice?
Good luck to all.Please send entries to CaptDee@rocketmail.com
