WestWind announces the England to Australia Race, in conjunction with Blue Grass Virtual Airlines. Our friends over at Blue Grass Airlines asked for our help again in presenting the original air race from England to Australia.

There are 4 options for routes. Option B largely follows the prize-winning route flown by a converted Vickers Vimy bomber (G-EAOU) (the registration being whimsically said to stand for "God 'elp all of us"). The original aircraft was crewed by Captain Ross McPherson Smith and brother Lieutenant Keith McPherson Smith as co-pilot and mechanics Sergeant W.H. (Wally) Shiers and J.M. (Jim) Bennett.

Option A follows the same route as option B but with shorter legs of about 300NM 51 sectors in total. Option B has the 23 stops of the original route. the longest leg about 640NM Option C is a High-Level route with fewer stops Legs up to 600NM Option D will cover select legs from option A and cover about half the original route. Click on the title for the link to the Official event page and more details. You have until September 15 to register for this event.
