Album: Twice new year's eve 2013-14

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

Achieved by "overtaking" the date lapse during new year's change from 2013 to 2014.

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

Distance: 3,100nm
Airborne time: 3 hours 33 minutes

The "unusual" above Concorde route was chosen so as to fly west and
A) catch in the simulator in real time the year change around the globe
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.
