You are reminded to use your gate pass, if you have one, and are encouraged to get on if you do not already.

In 2017, Rogeir flew an RV8 from the UK to Boston via Iceland and Greenland. There were three aircraft in total and a couple of professional photographers. Whenever he mentions it to someone they, they ask if he is totally mad. Come find out and hear about how he and group did it. You can determine if Rogier is mad. He claims, “Maybe I was, but it was some of the best flying I have done.”
