DXXX - DBBB
68nm, 0h 37 (total: 3381 nm, 22h 05)
The second of our three flights along the African coast, takes us from Togo to Benin.
It's a 3000 metre runway, so no need to backtrack!
Left turn on departure
We still have a 1400ft cloud base, but the flight is short so there's no need to climb above it.
Sea on one side, land on the other. It doesn't get more exciting than this! No, really, it doesn't!
Bisecting the coastline!
Nicely set up for a right-hand downwind join to runway 24
Turning right base over Lake Nokoué
The Gulf of Guinea, Atlantic Ocean, and eventually, Antarctica. But I don't think we have fuel enough for that. Landing might be better!
Runway vacated. And so to another session of form filling and passport stamping!
