Ok, when they talk about running the engine lean, DO IT !!!!
I was flying a rout over the Pacific that was flown durring WWII with the Baron 58, 1,200 miles, should have been in range even if it was a long time sitting on my behind (gota hand it to them old timers, talk about bunns of steel ). Made it about half way and then, KERRRPLUNK .
This was the longest flight I had tried so far by a long shot, and like the subject says, Lesson learned !!
Next time use a seaplane, just to be safe (cant help you once you've landed though, best left to the sharks meharty)
Yeah, I thought about that, but I was going from Rabaul to Peleliu. No water bases and I still am not that comfortable with the moving of planes around. (last time I flew in FS was way back with FS 1)
The original flights were flown during the battle for Peleliu to resupply the troops durring a storm when the Navy couldnt unload.
