No, sorry. It's much too dependent on the weather en route.

And departure was delayed until Saturday due to a hydraulics problem.

Kinda surprising to see them going north of all the weather (versus AMA-EFD early Monday morning, before the thunderstorms start developing, and likewise EFD to the Cape on Tuesday), but then again, maybe they want her to RON at an AFB for security concerns.



If this weather pattern holds, maybe they'll try to get her OFF-ADW early Monday morning, and then ADW to the Cape early Tuesday morning.

If I had to guess, it'd be that they go HOP to one of the military bases in NC or SC and stop there. The CCFP shows NC/SC clear of storms, and a NC/SC stop would put them close enough to the Cape where they can arrive there early enough Tuesday morning before the weather starts building...

I was just figuring they might try an additional segment the same day, like they did AMA-OFF after EDW-AMA.

HOP to the Cape is just a couple of hundred miles shorter tha the EDW-AMA leg, so if they get off early enough they can be home before the storms start to bubble up...
