G-IRTY left Karachi this morning and seems to have flown the route of highway N10. There was no track when I looked but I found a partial track for he Pilatus support aircraft OY-THP.

The foregoing tendency for shorter hops had me thinking G-IRTY might fly to UAE via Muscat but in fact they are flying direct to UAE with no stops.

The Spitfire descended from a height of around 8300ft to around 4000ft then increased speed on the outskirts of Abu Dhabi. After that long flight I think the pilot was excited and elated at the sight below him and was dancing about in the sky :lol:
