Ah,

Shots are fine, great detail in this res. :)
Must have been very exciting and tense watching those tanks. She landed basically on fumes.

Cheerz,
Will

I lost several flying days this week due to a work trip but I got a couple hours in tonight. 2,400 miles over open water for this leg and I'm already showing a problem with the number 1 engine. Temps and pressures look ok so I'm going to continue.

Leaving the coast of South America.

The African coast was a welcome sight after more than eight hours over water.

On approach.

Safely on the ground and ready to shut down.

Engine 1 used 30 (30!) gallons of oil, 6 gallons each on the inboards. Number 4 is my highest time engine with about 86 hours on it, and it used 11 gallons. I swore I fixed the oil leak on number 1 before takeoff but apparently I did not.

I mentioned the shift+2 menu was showing engine problems on number 1 shortly after takeoff. It turns out the oil and fuel filters were both yellow, the combination of both of them being yellow at the same time must have triggered the warning.

This leg was from Pinheiro Airport to Freetown International Airport, GFLL, in Lungi, Sierra Leone, Africa. 8.9 hours in the air and covering 2,328 miles, I burned 3,467 gallons of fuel.

I landed a little sooner on this leg to keep the fuel level a little more sane at the end of the flight. This leg was 1,814 miles, 7.1 hours from GFLL to FKKR, Garoua International Airport in Cameroon, Africa. Oil consumption was 6 gallons on number 1, 9 on 2, 6 on number 3, and number 4 now has an oil leak and used 24 gallons. 2,774 gallons of fuel burned. I have a couple oil leaks to fix and three engines need filters before the next flight.



I can't seem to get two of my screenshots to upload to Imgur right now but here I am leaving Lungi.
