This has been my longest over water leg in the Stratocruiser. The planner showed the direct distance to be 4075nm. I took full fuel and medium passenger/freight load and was fortunate to encounter favorable winds. I had Johnston Atoll as my emergency divert airfield. There is a lot of ocean between Australia and Hawaii. I had 9% (4005 lbs) of fuel remaining and only 6 gallons of oil for engine 3 remaining when I landed.
