I wish there was a way to sign up for email updates ? If there is i cant find it because of the site always locking up.

You on Facebook, Dennis?? 

Not since 2011 i dropped my account as no one in the family really wanted to stay in contact and i got tired of trying to do all the work.

Try this for the live tracker. 

Current status is given as.... 

8249ft

211 kts

Heading 189°

Looking like West of Quebec heading south. 

Time given 23.58 GMT so seems to be live OK 

Give that a go see if it works 

 

Added... 

Teterboro USA is scheduled for the 16th but just gone midnight here to the 17th and I can't get my head around that! 

But either still on schedule or not far behind. 

Where were you hoping to catch up with it?

Thanks for the help Rob, the closest point to me was going to be in Huntington Indiana about 130 miles east/south-east. But that was scheduled for Sunday the 18th. Looks like they've got 2-3 stops between where they are Ontario, Teterboro New jersey, Beaver County airport which i think is Pennsylvania then My stop in Indiana. And that stop which would put it into the middle of next week. Normally not a big deal. Unfortunately this week me and SWMBO have Dr's. Appointments most of the week so no good. If that trackers is accurate i will use it to follow it. If i can see the plane i will thats all i can hope for.

Week 4 update:

 

 

To be honest I haven't paid a whole lot of attention to this, but having caught up on the thread, which seemed to go dry, I figured someone might like to know what was going on.

Good idea putting links to their updates etc on here. @gingerbob

It's been a real interesting journey so far and they seem to be getting better at PR blogs. 

There's been quite a bit of chat and info going on on my WIP thread over time, but it'd be great to have a set of links together here. 

 

This is the state of play with my Eduard 1.48 kit....
