Sorry for the major delay, however due to a computer motherboard passing away, I was forced to recover data for a while, then I got the flu that never leaves. Continuing my Electronic flight around the world in Microsoft Flight Simulator, I left Samoa and Headed for the island of Vanuatu.
I landed at my 4th stop, Vanuatu without too much difficulty. Haven’t had to challenge the range of the aircraft so far, but I am sure I will come to that point soon.
Vanuatu was first inhabited by Melanesian people. The first Europeans to visit the islands were the members of a Spanish expedition led by Portuguese navigator Fernandes de Queirós who arrived in Espiritu Santo in 1605. In the 1880s France and the United Kingdom claimed parts of the country, and in 1906 they agreed on a framework for jointly managing the archipelago as the New Hebrides through a British–French Condominium. An independence movement arose in the 1970s, and the Republic of Vanuatu was created in 1980.
you can of course read the all about this island at Wikipedia.
I am heading for New Zealand from here. Not really a nessessary trip, but I figured since I was in the area, I might just as well head that way.
