Foreign Airfield Visit

Honolulu – Friday 6th March 2020 (Mark Paulin)

Evening all,

After having a couple of hours in the First Class Lounge at Sydney, which is complete with an old style clapperboard departure board, I parted company with Royston and boarded VH-EBN A332 for the 9 hours 30 mins flight to Honolulu.

After a pretty bumpy climb-out the flight was smooth allowing for plenty of sleep in preparation for having the day just completed again.

A smooth approach and landing was made at Honolulu. Unfortunately it was raining (warm rain though) so the wet days continue. Customs is now using the Auto machines which makes things so much quicker. Within 30 minutes I was on the road.

I had planned today to spend this morning on Waikiki Beach before heading back to the Airport to check in. Rather than lay on the Beach I did a fair bit of walking and enjoyed lunch in one of the many Bistro’s that line the streets in Waikiki. It felt more like Tokyo with thousands of Japanese Tourists everywhere.

After lunch I headed back to the Airport and made a run along Lagoon rive logging as I went. I then headed to my Hotel, The Best Western Plaza. I have room 916 which is a corner room so I can see both approaches as well as the hangers and cargo area beyond runways o4L/R.

Logged on a busy afternoon/evening from 1430 – 2200. For completeness I have logged everything that has flown with the exception of Hawaiian where I have logged just those I needed.
