    We are getting closer to our goal to reach Vladivostok but must make a stop in Blagoveschensk.
    Blagoveshchensk (Russian: Благовещенск, IPA: [bləgɐˈvʲeɕːɪnsk], lit. the city of the Annunciation) is a city and the administrative center of Amur Oblast, Russia, located at the confluence of the Amur and Zeya Rivers, opposite to the Chinese city of Heihe. Population: 214,390 (2010 Census);[9] 219,221 (2002 Census);[15] 205,553 (1989 Census).[16]

    The Amur has formed Russia's border with China since the 1858 Aigun Treaty and 1860 Treaty of Peking. The area north of the Amur belonged to the Manchu Qing dynasty by the Treaty of Nerchinsk of 1689, until it was ceded to Russia by Aigun Treaty in 1858.

    Again practice your NDB approach skills at this airport.

    It is your call to pick a flight. For the rest of December you have the opportunity to pick a flight Saturday. Log on an extra 15-30 minutes before takeoff time (0900PST/1200EST/1700UTC/1800CET) and suggest a flight from the vast VAFS library lasting 1-2 hours.
    I will be back with new adventures in January 2019.

    Thanks for flying with us
