Easy to exceed range expectations and, set time record for class with a significant tailwind... how would a reverse route fair?
Except for the date (one day off) most of the details match

I'd say that would be 30 min time before someone would be get'n fired

Maybe you're thinking pounds not gallons. 642 gallons is roughly 4300 lbs of fuel. That's a very typical landing fuel for this size aircraft. Not pushing it at all.

Sorry, E V E, if you're going to claim records, you should be able to answer the mail on if it's the same results going east to west....
