September 6th - October 30th, 2011

Flying around Africa in a TBM 850.



Actual Itinerary
This is a work in progress. Few if any of the flight pages (F##:XXXX-to-XXXX) work. Those are video heavy, and just take a lot of time. None of the images are edited (cropping, color/white balance/exposure correction). None of the panoramic stitches are up. None of the high-dynamic range images are up.
