Album: Twice new year's eve 2014-15

Twice new year's eve in one evening with FlightSimLabs Concorde on FSX simulator.
Concorde reg. SX-DCG of Olympic Air Virtual's Supersonic subsidiary.

Achieved by "overtaking" flying west the date lapse during new year's change from 2014 to 2015.

From WSSS Singapore Changi (UTC+8)
FIMP Mauritius Plaisance (UTC+4)
over the Indian Ocean.

Distance: 3,050nm
Airborne time: 3 hours 33 minutes

It includes 280nm subsonic cruise portion to clear Indonesia populated overland areas.

The "unusual" above Concorde route was chosen so as to fly west and
A) catch in the simulator in real time twice the year change
B) before departure (at UTC+8 zone) and after arrival (at UTC+4 zone) after pilot returned from (real) work at home, but also to,
C) allow pilot to enjoy new year's eve (for a third time in one evening!) at pilot's local time zone (EET) UTC+2 away from PC with family, well after ending the simulator session.

The flight was executed on line at vatsim network.
