I watched the last hours of that one. Sounded somewhat dramatic, to me.

One thing I wasn't clear on . . . they seemed to have 2 pilots? At times, I wasn't sure. There was certainly not a luxury of space!

Two different fliers. One at a time. Alternating legs.

Ahhhhh . . . that would explain my confusion. Thanks.

So a good bit of flying is on auto-pilot, evidently. One HAS to sleep! LOL.

Leg 10 will be from Mountain View to a city to be determined, and will cover an estimated 1096 nautical miles.

One of the reasons I enjoy you [in spite of our starkly different constructions on reality]

IS your droll sense of humor. It often has me chuckling. Love it.
