Upgrade Completed; But still a work in progress!

Hello travelers!

As you can see, we upgraded our forums on Wednesday Oct 15th. We're back up and running, but we are still a work in progress! We'll be renaming things and creating an all around better experience. In the meantime, you can use the forums (the functionality is extremely similar to what you are used to). We hope to be finished tweaking things very shortly. Thank you for your patience; it is appreciated!

  • London to Cape Town -tech stop where in Central Africa?

    Hi Guys

    I know that there is an official soccer world cup thread, however, it doesn't look like it would be the place for my question.

    I am planning a trip in a GIV from London to Cape Town. I am considering where to tech stop in Africa as we can only manage about 3800 nm. That means Luanda is probably the furthest south we could get on the "ama glug glug".

    I am considering Accra (been there before), Douala or Malabo. Can anyone tell me which of these, or any other suggested airfields, would make for a relatively "easy" tech stop i.e. get fuel & go?!

    Thanks in advance.

    Cape town is actually the most visited destination. Table Mountain National Park and Cape Town Tourism are well known as supporting committee to champion the mountain’s cause. Table Mountain is the only terrestrial feature to have a constellation named after it.
