My time for using it is a little (read: very) limited at the moment as I cannot sit in front of the PC for hours on end, but I am in the process of trying to do something that I have intended to since the B377 was released...
I wanted to take it to South Africa, as that was one of the last bastions on the British Empire (which crumbled very quickly during the Stratocruiser's time frame) and it's the type of long haul sector that the aircraft was designed to fly. However there's no way in blazes I could do that. So what about stopping off in every country that I passed over en-route? That turned into stopping in the Capital City of every country that I flew over on a straight line from London to South Africa, but then I had to decide which of the three "capitals" of South Africa to go to. I chose Cape Town, as it is the furthest South of the three.
So if I'm flying from Capital to Capital to Cape Town, where better to start than Cardiff? Need to get as many "C"s into "Capitals from Cardiff to Capetown" as I can.
Unfortunately, I've never got very far, because I had barely started before my back decided it was going to throw me onto the scrap heap and keep me there, so the aircraft is stuck in... Algiers, I think, at the moment.
Anyway. This is the route I'm still looking at. If anyone has any corrections or comments to make (such as that I got a capital city wrong or chose the wrong airport at the capital city) then please let me know.01) EGFF-EGLL02) EGLL-LFPG03) LFPG-LEMD04) LEMD-DAAG05) DAAG-DRRN

If I ever finish this one, I might have to do Aberdeen to Zanzibar, via as many letters of the alphabet as I can find within range...
