0730 transfer to airport, another flying day. After a smooth take-off, little traffic, we were quickly cleared to 26,000 then 29,000. Just for curiosity we plugged in our Milwaukee airport (MWC)… 7,251 NM away! Of course that would be the great circle route—which is not our journey’s plan.
Todays flight path also took us right over Vientiane, Laos where our good friend, Richard, spent a few years of his flying career.
Approaching Luang Prabang the clouds are closing in as the terrain rises in the “up country” of Laos.
