Hope the link works! Just click on the spot. I found places were not exactly where I thought, some not at all.

I don't think I'm a very good pilot...:(

nice one enjoyed it.

17,129 points, Geography not my strong point...

Only 8 seconds to work out where you're going?

Takes me longer than that to get out of the drive.

What are we piloting, a rocket?

I got 24750 points. I knew my skills from 1960s geography and working in the export trade years ago would come in useful - except for Turkey which I missed by a country mile!

fourm member....I signed up and got my own aircraft for a day!

I did fill in my details last night but there is no sign of an email and I checked the spam box too this morning as it would very likely be filtered there. Maybe my score wasn't high enough to warrent a reply!

Morddwyd, I agree with that. It reminds me a bit of one of those eye tests. Look here, then there and press a button but more because of the thinking bit too.

The first time I tried, I was trying to click on the plane to take it to land, then discovered that
you just click on the spot. Or in later stages wher you think the spot should be.

I wasn't too bad with Birmingham, also Budapest and Milan for some reason. The eastern part of Europe is a different shape to my mind's eye! Lucky that I am not a pilot. My highest score was just over 20,000 (Didn't keep the exact score) but few cities really close.

I found it interesting.

That is good! No one offered me an aeroplane! But safety first of course!

I guess you need a good score to get a response.

22556 but missed a couple, in the third round, by a very long way!
