Default 48 landings in 48 states

Yesterday, (May 28) two 99's, Myra and Claudette, left Florida to begin their quest to land in 24 of the 48 contiguous United States. Follow the adventures on the blog https://flyingduo.blogspot.com.

Do they have a tracker? We want to intercept them in the Northeast.

Looking at the image on the BLOG post:

I see an N number of the airplane they are using.

Gong to https://www.FlightRadar24.com, I enter the N-number and it gives me the track / position. It looks like they have a Mode S Transponder for ADS-B out.

Looks like they are not very far from me.

That?s what they were up too!

I saw them takeoff from HXD at 9am today.

Sounds like a great mission!

Myra and Claudette,
Good luck, and especially, good weather luck on your travels. A trip of this duration will surely bring many interesting adventures.
