    [font size="1" color="#FF0000"]LAST EDITED ON Mar-27-03 AT 07:03AM (EST)[/font][p]Hi Phillip,

    Wonderful leg --> EXCELLENT WORK !

    - No limousine <-- :-lol :-lol
    - The arrival to the airport of -Antananarivo- is a little bit difficult - right ? Especially at this time of the day. It is situated in something like a crater. Once I wanted to fly from Sydney to Johannesburg and had bad winds, so I approached Ivato Airport. I was really surprised by the location of the airport. :-lol Wasn't easy to land there with a Boeing 747-200. ;-)

    greetings

    Yes, talk about being surprised... I thought it was a graphic card glitch that caused half my runway to disappear... Then the thought came to me and #####! Thankfully, I pulled up in time. Wouldn't want my RTW tour to end prematurely...:-lol

    What a low-budget car you organised for me!!!!!:-lol
    Nice cliff FS made for you, great landing though!
    I had the same in Peru, wrecked a nice Electra, suddenly the RW lights disappeared (after a 2 hrs. flight)
    Nice leg Phillip!
