Anyone know what's up with the Aeropelican EMB-110 in MKE? I saw it parked outside the Air Cargo Carriers Hanger. This is the aircraft:

Probably the same one she used to get to Australia.

Seriously - Australia to Lae, PNG to Truk to Wake to Midway to Adak to Anchorage to MKE

The US Army and other military forces move turboprops from the Far East to the US via the Midway - Adak leg - which is less than 1,500nm.

Much shorter/ less open water flying than trying to make Hawaii to the west coast. With a ferry tank, and no load - 1,500 nm is well within the Emb-110 range.

Well you can take a slightly longer route, but shorter legs - though you need to refuel at Iwo Jima if you go through Guam or Saipan

They could get the longest leg down to 832nm by going through Sokol at Madagan in Russia. That is how most single engine and small twins are doing circumnavigations these days.
