He’s certainly not on a nice beach enjoying the sun. Our most recent download has put him in the middle of the Sahara Desert approaching the border between Algeria and Mali. He has travelled approximately 780 miles since the North African coast crossing the Atlas Mountains on the way. On Thursday he passed over what was probably his last chance for water, an Algerian river, Friday night meant a roost in the desert, but by 9.00am this morning he was on his way once again. If he keeps to the course south that he has set himself and continues with his tactic of flying high and fast he should meet the Niger River in southern Mali within two days. For those with a wish for detail he has been flying between 1400 and 1500 metres at a speed of 60 to 70 kph.
