Iguazu Falls, Argentina

Iguazu Falls, Argentina

At 1309 UTC the Sky Polaris RV-8 lifted off from the General Rodriguez, Argentina airport near Buenos Aries and has flown over 4.5 hours en route to the Iguazu Falls airport located near the Iguazu River and the Brazilian border.

The Iguazu Falls are a major tourist attraction for this area due to the huge waterfalls along the river, one of the largest waterfall systems in the world. Michel has already flown over the falls and hopefully has many aerial photos of the river and the jungles around it.

This will put the Sky Polaris project at 25 degrees south and near the Tropic of Capricorn.

It may seem like Captain Gordillo is getting near his final destination of Madrid, Spain, however he still has over 9000 km more to fly, including the huge expanse of ocean from Brazil to Africa. This is the same route he has already flown on the first part of the project.

Keep following the flight and we should have beautiful photos soon.

Thousands of tini RV-0.08’s are living underneath the curtains of the falls. Maybe Michel can visit them with his mother-RV?

Disfruta del vuelo de vuelta Michel. Tomatelo con calma, escribe notas de todo, que esperamos un libro ansiosamente para los que te estamos siguiendo. Cuídate y no corras, como se decía antes, porque es que ademas yo no estaré en Madrid hasta el sábado día 9 que habré vuelto del viaje familiar en el que estoy, y así podre estar en Cuatro Vientos, que otras veces (¡perra vida!) tampoco he podido ir. Suerte amigo.
