Longest distance in a 24 hours maybe plus a couple

EWR- DEN United DC8 -30, DEN- SFO United DC8-50 -SFO-LHR BA 747-200, as you might imagine that was not really planned, I was going home from Dallas but due to a family bereavement my colleague could not make the Denver meeting he but not I was due to go to had a sudden bereavement so I made good use of the time difference across the states leaving EWR at about 7 am getting to Denver around 0930, meeting and a quick lunch Denver to SFO arriving about 4pm for a flight about 6pm to London arriving early afternoon. I wouldnt fancy doing that at my age now. and security would have made it unlikely as well.
