Just a quike note to say I flew the B 767 back from Mombassa. She's a beauty to fly compared to the B757, more stable and rides the Turbulence better but she 'aint as pretty! 9 hours later I managed to grease it on{rare as it, unlike the 757, has a forward tilt undercarriage and is not so forgiving} before it sets of, 2 hours later, to Cuba. Later I'll be flaring Brug a little lower to the ground with, no autopilot, GPS, poor brakes and mark one eyeball- real flying!
