P.S. Uh Oh......I just happened to think of something.......there are a few
people around here who really fly REAL airliners to some of these places;
that's probably going to give you a big advantage; you're still welcome to
play, but I'm afraid you will be ineligible for the "Grand Prize"......(to be announced later.)

Good find Charley.
Well, I took notes of each landing, with it's miles and score.
I found round 2 perhaps the easiest, the cities in round 1, unless they are well known, tend to distract.
Milan - 9 miles
Belgrade - 186 miles
Cologne - 108 miles
Istanbul - 9 miles
St. Petersburg - 314 miles. (I'd have done better there if was still Leningrad maybe!)
Brussels - 33 miles
Lisbon - 65 miles
Marseille - 57 miles
Izmir - 58 miles (Got lucky, I knew it was Turkey the rest was a guess within the landmass of that country).
Catalina - 532 miles (I thought it was in Spain, it isn't!)
Katowice - 172 miles (Knew it was Poland, the rest was luck, no borders in this round).
Minsk - 80 miles (Knew the general part of the map, the rest was luck).
Ankara - 141 miles
Venice - 95 miles
Hanover - 98 miles.
Total score = 24753 points.
Not a horrible score but not too good either, I like to think I got nearer to many cities, compared to where Ryanair say they are flying to and the distance from the airport they actually land at!

25,683 here.. what is weird is that I did better at round 3 with no Country boundries... got two of them within 8 miles in that round, and all under 100miles other than Izmir which I had no idea where it was (got 146 on that one).
