Today's Part of my journey goes from Khatanga to Alykel/Norilsk (UOOO). A short hop of some 350nm. Weather is ok, rarely winds at flightlevel and if there are winds, then in the right direction.
Again I see that Siberia is very, very big. Now I understand, that one needs eight days, if one goes with the transsiberian railway from one end to the other.
I am now flying many hours over Siberia, and I have over 700 nautical miles to the Ural-Range, which is the border between Europe and Asia.
But today I have a flighttime of one and a half hour, and I have to descend to lower levels, because we are approaching the Airport.
A the briefing I did not notice, that Alykel has an ILS. Out of habit, I made the landing by handsteering ;-)
The next leg is going to Salekhard (USDD) over 500 miles, there I am nearly in Europe.
