The Azores is an archipelago composed of nine volcanic islands in the North Atlantic Ocean, 870 miles west of Lisbon, 930 miles northwest of Morocco, and 1,200 miles southeast of Newfoundland, Canada.

Given their location, I was pleased to find this piece, which reveals a remarkable WWII history. It's worth a read. https://warfarehistorynetwork.com/2018/ ... ld-war-ii/

Warbirds again for this one!

Skyvector looks like: https://skyvector.com/?ll=39.6827838021 ... 08W%20LPCR

Meet at: 1830z for a 1900z departure.

Meet on: Digital Theme Park on JoinFS.

Comms through A2A Discord channel.

Start at: Santa Maria Airport, LPAZ.

Local takeoff time: 0700.

Weather: Historic - unless we choose to adjust. According to Wikipedia: ". . . the climate of the Azores is very mild for such a northerly location . . . It is also generally wet and cloudy."

I thought you'd like it. It was great, apart from the misidentified "C-46".
