Solo Across the Atlantic

June 27, 2016 | Author: Shane Tedjarati

Follow Shane Tedjarati as he flies across the Atlantic in his Cessna Citation Mustang he lovingly calls Josephine. His only copilot? His bear, Vladmir, who always accompanies him around the world. His uniform boasts pins from their travels together. Keep coming back for more video blogs and beautiful imagery from Shane. UPDATE: His trip has now wrapped up, but you can follow the journey here.

    I had no idea of his passion for flying. His story is inspiring, showing us that whatever is possible. It is a shame that not all pictures can been seen in this page, hopefully those are fixed soon.
