Flying East

Going eastbound has its challenges, namely that you arrive at your destination late having lost hours of daylight due to time zone crossings.  It also doesn't help when you get started across the Atlantic and then remember that you have forgotten the aircraft fuel card which is essential in purchasing fuel at your various stops.  That cost about five hours and pushed our timeline right for the rest of the trip.  When you arrive at an o-conus military base at 0400, there are not exactly many services available to the service members.  So, what do we do, we sleep for a few hours and then "hit the vil'", which for me means simply getting some local variety chow and seeing the sights.  This is a picture going across the eastern Atlantic between the Azores and Portugal.  The second pic is our destination, Souda Bay Crete and "the vil'" which in this case is the port city of Chania.
