What is not showing is the weather overlay with Hurricane Irene in front of him, he is showing that he will head South of the Hurricane and should get a nice tailwind.

ive seen history of an airport in hawaii that had a C208 fly from cali.-hawaii. it was like some 12 or 13 hrs or so. i wonder how they manage to send them that far…

Ferry tanks are added for the aircraft and bottles are added for the pilot.

Single engine piston and turboprop aircraft aren’t the only aircraft that are ferried distances longer than the range of the aircraft. Hawaiian’s B717 had to have ferry tanks added.
