Having flown most of my life, I always found it unusual that nothing ever happened to the AR flights. It was interesting to see "real life" finally intrude. And it was fun to see the first group lose their lead. I thought it was really cool when Big Easy put the emphasis on the victim.Even though they had to land for a medical emergency, I rather enjoyed the fact that right off the bat timetables were screwed up. Also...do you realize how far it is to travel by car from Palm Springs to LA International through traffic? Yikes! They must have been on the freeways at least two hours. Ontario International would have been closer, but maybe they don't handle Quantas.
I used to work for an airline out at Denver, and one day my co-workers and I challenged each other to see who had traveled on the longest single flight. The winner was a ramp agent who had flown from Denver to Sydney, which he said took 20 hours. Yikes. And I thought spending 6 hours in a plane to England was bad.
That's exactly what I told hubby!I'm so glad to see Kynt and Vyxin, and so happy to see they haven't changed in the last couple of years. They are a hoot. The cowboys were my favorites on their race, but I don't know how far they will go if the challenges involve brain power. I guess we wait to see if they can catch up and pass the last team.
I want to go on the 16ft sailboats. That looked really cool.
