Not sure, but earlier he was quoted as being excited to be landing in Paris, so my guess is the next leg is Azores to Paris.

If me I’d fly to Madrid then Paris. But he might want to fly as far as possible every day.

You make a great point, Jack. Pushing to Paris is another tough,long leg, actually farther than I realized. It will be interesting to see what he does. I made a number of ocean crossings in the F-4, including four non-stop 11/12 hour flights between New Mexico and Germany, and it's physically tough being in the seat that long -- not able to stand up and stretch.

clt is glad to see another pilot here

I used to put the G suit on over the poopy suit and use the G Suit test to pump the blood in and out of my legs. Those long over the pond flights were difficult on the body. On one crossing I was the number two ground spare for a sister squadron and ended up leading the third wave when all was said and done. When I pulled off my helmet after landing the crew chief looked at me and said "Who the hell are your!"
