OK, once again I use the name similarities of the western world: Starting from Lima, Ohio...

A few miles south is Sidney, Ohio. There are 21 cities in the USA (and the one in Canada, Holger!) with this typo - if Lord Sydney knew that... https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thomas_Townshend,_1st_Viscount_Sydney

And not much longer it is time to turn downwind...

... into Dayton, to prepare for the next leg of this long day.

The obvious proof of the routing. After flying this route I recognized that there is an "Armstrong Air and Space Museum" in Wapakoneta. And just a little Google away I learned that the first man to step on extraterrestrial ground was born there. Fascinating.

great flight Gerold, very flat, not much to see, like hills or mountains...

That´s true, Wayne - but that´s how it is, and where we sometimes go!

More evidence that the World is flat ………:blink::P:D

We just need to be careful not to reach the end of the disc and then fall down!

Another nice little Gerold adventure. Sure, a large chunk of the USA is pretty flat, but there are still lot's of interesting things to see down on the ground. Doesn't make for the most exciting flying, but oh well. Very nice looking and pleasant flight images here :)
