My highest was 29918, although i have to admit that was largely due to very easy airports in the third round, which were Malta, Istanbul, Riga, London and Hamburg.
Still, haven't had that much luck since, would like to have some easy hits again to get 30k :(
Mostly end up with 28-29k due to airports such as Zurich or Kiev in round 3, which are in the middle of the landmass and only roughly plottable through the shoreline.

28620....

3 embarrassing off shots... and one minor... OSL 60NM off, Athens 55, Bucharest 63 and Madrid 42...

retrying :P

btw. the error in the game is, that the LH A346 departs from USA to random EU places... always click FRA or MUC (DUS has no 346 based) and you should be right :P


29285 in the second try... failed on Kiev and Graz this time... both 60NM off ;D

better stopping now, before I spend all day with it :P
