Chub Cay, Bahamas - Miami, USA
Thursday 22nd November 2007
Hard to leave the Bahamas with weather like this - only a short hop back to the US though - 1 hour 30 flying or so.
Crossing the US "ADIZ" - the military protection zone, you must call on VHF and identify what you're up to, and get assigned a transponder code for customs.
First sight of the USA again, approaching the southern shores of Miami.
Video: First contact with Miami Approach, FL105, 50 miles east
Final approach and landing of the journey, landing 09L at Tamiami Kendall Airport.
First stop cussies for a small mountain of paperwork, explanations, stamps, and form-filing.
After a short transfer to MIA international, nice to have someone else worry about the flying for a change.
4250nm, 42.4 hours of flying
- 7800 kilometres and 14 days.
Thanks all for following along with the trip.
