Pacific Ocean on my right.... Now if I could extend those tanks by let's see, 7500 miles..... say 1,500 litres, I could make it easy :)

Walt, when someone from Melbourne is complaining that it's cold you know its cold :)

Just day dreaming about the route to the US and found this...

Very rough reckoning you'd need to tank around 750 ltrs for the longest leg, although a simple 50knot headwind would mess your plan up :(    Whenever I do those kind of calcs I can't help feeling how amazingly exciting and risk filled it was for the pioneers. I always spare a quick thought with my first G&T when flying long-haul for those trail-blazers that made it, and more important those unlucky souls that didn't..
