Thought I would add a picture since it so clearly shows Branhams is starting to use LED landing lts.

I think that"s the only way to go last forever even in high vibration and have low current draw with twice the light.

I found a couple recent photos of N717RW at Instagram so for something to do decided to post them.

I opened them in the photo queue above.

I found a bit of the ferry flt route on this ac when it stopped in Malta while being delivered to pakistan as AP-AVG too bad there wasn't a photo. Nothing in the History file about Ferry tanks probably figured the long range fuel was enough also means they probably took the northern route, with the shorter distances between refueling points.

6/67 Helio AP-AVG arrived in Malta from Boston (but nothing about which of the 3 possible atlantic crossings from Boston) and departed for Athens. Probably next stop Karachi, Pakistan.
