FLIGHT OF PASSAGE
Welcome!This bushtrip is based on the book "Flight Of Passage" written by Rinker Buck, describing his coast to coast flight with his older brother Kern back in the summer of 1966. The brothers, aged 15 and 17, had no radio, no transponder and no navigation equipement beside a compass and a roadmap. The took their self-restored Piper Cub reg. N4971H, nicknamed 71H, to the skies during Independence Day weekend and finished the tour in 6 days.
I have completed this tour myself in FSX, P3D and MSFS and tried to retrace the route as accuratly as possible. Still, not all legs of the route are described in great detail in the book and in such cases I decided to take some liberties to guess the most likely route. An external map application (like LittleNavMap, Google or Bing) is highly recommended to be able to navigate properly along the rivers, railroads and roads used by Kern and Rink.
This bushtrip does contain my own livery for N4971H (modeled after the newly restored version, check out supercub.org for more information).
My thanks go out to BuffyGC for the BushTripInjector and his help during designing this trip. Also, to theDudeWG and masszukidad for their help in creating N4971H.
