In January I started a tour with the RAF Tomahawk IIb. The tour began in RAF Thorpe Abbots and I today I reached Cotonou in Benin.
Here's a list of the complete tour until now:
RAF Thorpe Abbots - Coltishall - Calais Dunkerque - Montpellier - Punta Raisi Sizilien - Luqa Malta - Karthago - Tabarka - El Aroui - Taza Sandstrip - Ouarzazate - Plage Blanche - Dakhla - St. Louis (Senegal) - Dakar (Senegal) - Banjul Intl. - Bissau - Spriggs Payne - San Pedro Elfenbeinküste - Accra - Cotonou
Around 30 hours on the clock and I've had only some small problems. In San Pedro (Ivory Coast) I had to change both brakes because they were completely worn.
After the landing in Accra the maintenance hangar showed all filters (fuel, oil and air) in yellow. I thought, okay, just watch it closely.
The next trip should go to Lagos in Nigeria, but after approximately one hour of flight, the engine started to sputter and I decided to land in Cotonou (Benin).
The maintenance hangar stated inspect engine, but the filters were still yellow. I did a restart on the ground but the engine was still running rough. After having cleaned all filters, the engine ran smooth again.
So for the next time, there's a longer flight, I'll clean the filters in advance.
For most of the flights I travelled at around 15000ft with 2300 rpm and 27" MP.
