N919ES flown to India!

If you ever flew Twin Star 9ES and wonder about its whereabouts… after the sale earlier this year it was handed over to the buyer in Tracy, CA (KTCY), and after a number of registration-related hurdles were taken the plane has been flown to India.

The most direct way would go NW-bound through Russia, which is obviously not a good idea anymore for a number of reasons.
Instead, with an extra 10%, the resulting ~65 hour/~10,000 nm flight took a much safer route from California via Goose Bay, South Greenland, Iceland, Belgium, Italy, Crete, Egypt, Saudi-Arabia and Oman to India (click on the map to see a larger version).

We salute 9ES and hope she will help mint many multi-engine pilots going forward!
