Final Day:
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.

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.

Here's the route map.

4250nm, 42.4 hours of flying

- 7800 kilometres and 14 days.

Thanks all for following along with the trip.

Congrats on successfully completing your mission!

Any chance of a trip back to the private island one day?

The flying school will seem quite repetitive after the this trip, maybe a similar mission around the pacific once I can co-pilot.
