Step 1: Start from Gelnica, Slovak Republic.

Step 2: Initial heading 91°, 8440 nautical miles

Step 3: See which aircraft was built in Gelnica, dismantled and brought there to be produced…..

I think Jabiru 3300 was considered as one of the engine alternatives.

Blimey, that took some finding, even with the clues!

Silly me plotted on a transverse Mercator chart and not on a Lambert conical projection.

Your 091 initial track is a degree out.

Thanks RR for the accolade.

Please standby.....

It very well may be, because Gelnica has no airport, and it is taken from the nearest, which Kosice.

Would you buy 090?

Yes - I'll buy 090 degrees true. We never say heading, always track.

Which way do you want me to attack, ask you which, do a blunder-bus guess, or try to find it? The third way may take a while
