General remarks about your flight:
This flight was conducted in memory of a lost friend. John T. Kounis once flew N6275E across the Pacific - from the banks of California to the beaches of Borneo - a tremendous achievement. Or as he called it: The trip of his lifetime. In 2016 I continued flying 75E westward - took her from Borneo to Europe. Two years later I had the time and the resources to complete an entire world circum navigation - "THE JOHN T. KOUNIS MEMORIAL WORLD FLIGHT" John's own route across the Pacific is depicted on the tail of the airplane. A minor contribution to keep John's memory alive


Advice to other pilots:
ITīS WORTH IT. DO IT.
