Title: The flight back home (Lanzerote Canary Islands to Murcia, Spain)

37:46.6N 000:48.7W


Hola Europe!


The following day, we had to cross the short stretch between the islands back to the African continent to Morocco and continue on via the city
of Rabat and
the Spanish enclave of Meillia over the Mediterranean Sea to the Spanish main­land.





The Spanish Coast at Almeria



The weather conditions over central and northeastern Morocco proved to be rather poor, and we were in and out of IMC conditions
many
times and, even picked up some icing.


One positive thing was, that moving
northeast with the very strong tailwind component, we were indicating between 230 and 240 knots ground
speed, on this
second-to-last leg of our grand tour.



Murcia, Spain


 
We made the last stop at Murcia, on
the Mediterranean coast of Spain, in order to let the cold front we just left behind pass over night.
