We are not able to climb, the temperature is too high, the aircraft too heavy, 6 tanks full fuel, 800 litres, we start wondering what will happen in a few days leaving Bali when we have to depart under similar conditions, just one other problem: in Bali we are surrounded by mountains and we HAVE to climb to avoid mountains. Right now we are over water and we can take our time climbing. We have a 5 hour flight ahead of us.
This morning we cleared customs and immigrations fast... after they arrived 45 min late. This delay, of course, caused a build up of company aircraft (our group) and unnessesary delay. Those waiting for their departure clearance are getting very frustrated. We symphasise and we understand, having been there many times.
One hour 18 min to go to Bali, Indonesia. From the airport 90 min drive to our hotel in the Highlands. But first immigration and custums.
33 min to go to Bali, all we see below us is water.
First view of Indonesia
Refuelling in Bali
Cilliers Jordaan from Execujet Cape Town is here at Execujet Bali until December, he knows our plane ZS-JOP in CT, we think the world is big? No way....
