I have just had a call from J & J they are in a clean air conditioned terminal building in Phuket. Jean said he has never seen such a clean and well organized airport in his life. And they are in really good spirits after a brilliant flight of just over 9 hours. The last hour was in smooth clear air with a bright full moon lighting their way for them.
By the way, this time while we were chatting I remembered to ask Jean how the Sling 4 flew with 560 litres of fuel on board at the Reunion take off and was delighted to hear that the plane hardly seemed to notice the extra weight and lifted off and climbed beautifully because I was a bit concerned about them taking off so heavy.
