headsethair,

your man 22clipper is being recomended to a company who set off with 7 hours 30 of fuel according to their flight plan (I estimate that to be 675lbs of fuel plus 2 guys plus APS weight), unless that was in jerry cans on the back seat with a tube to the tank, that would suggest a range extender was fitted.

grainger,

unmodified is relevant because details of any modifications eg range extenders appear not to have been supplied to the AAIB or they wouldnt have said:
"The pilots would not provide details of the amount of fuel carried on board but reported that it was sufficient for the crossing"

finally it was nervouspassenger who said "I dont do politics" I just agreed with him.
as far as I can see there is nothing I have written that is not true and in the public domain

regards

CF
