Having looked at the maps I cannot find the water landings just hard surfaces except Barra that is sand, and not I would have thought suitable for an amphibian. Could the list of airfields be published unless I have missed it.

There are no water runways along the route. Start points have been set in the water alongside existing airfields and landings should be made alongside the relevant airfields on the map. Microsoft did not seem to think that anywhere outside North America needed water runways. In one or two locations I found that the water was not always flat just offshore, so not quite as real as it got.
The DH Beaver and the Grumman Goose both are on the FSX cd. I still have FS9 & FSX install on my PC and just copied all the MS planes from those sims and placed them in my P3D sim. All planes work just fine.
The Goose is actually in the P3D sim just needs a PANEL added to it and it might be flyable. I didn't go that route, I just delete that plane folder and place my Goose folder from FSX into the P3D sim.
I have plotted out the 10 legs using P3D and Little Navmap, based on the PDF Route Map Legs that have so far been posted. I have spotted two Nav points missing in P3D.
The first is on LEG #1. Location BDF found at the Broadford Airstrip (which is not in P3D). No commercial services have existed after 1988en, and the airfield is most of the time deserted. Currently only used for medical emergencies.
The second is on LEG #2. Location RN found near the city of “Port a reindhlein”.
I used FS9 to find both of the location points as to where they are located, so I will be able to visually spot the locations using P3D.
I always use my C-47 in these events. That way I can log the flight hours with DC-3 Airways. These rallies (all the Bluegrass series, the DC-3 World Rally series, and Mutley's MEBAR series) provide the majority of my DC-3 flight hours since I have discovered the A2A Comanche, P-51, and now the Bonanza.
Thank you very much for putting this rally together! I'll be carrying several cases of Famous Grouse scotch for our debrief sessions!
Discrepancy for leg Nine? As per flight chart, ENRS -> SAD (or nearby airport for T&G) -> KT (or nearby airport for T&G) -> ENTC As per flight information, ENRS -> ENBO (as in leg 8) -> ENTC I am assuming chart is OK, but any T&G near SAD or KT? Blue skies
