No GPS spot-tracker linked up? Was neat to follow when BTB ran to Cancun.

That is an awesome feeling. New guys would crap on themselves when we would head out 20 miles for an escort at night in the gulf....the only thing you could see was your radar/plotter and the stars! Know your job, use and trust your gear, thats what its there for.
Have a great run guys! Sure wish I was there.

Just landed a little while ago. They were off to a great start. Just outside Sandy Hook in the ocean they began hit hit larger swells then I think they were expecting . I know for sure I have a shot down the bow where I can see both props. 680 gallons of fuel is a lot of weight so I was shocked they got so much air time. Something at some point forced them to stop to make repairs. We waited about 10 min but then decided it was time to go back to the airport. Looks like they got back up and running as they appear to be much further south from where we left them. When I hear anything I will post it. I will be on the road for several hours before I get back to the office. Wish them the best !
