The news everyone has been waiting for has finally arrived! Norman and G-YROX have departed Nongprue and are well on their way to Trang, which lies 67 miles (110Km) from the southernmost border of Thailand on the Malay Peninsular. The flight is a straight line journey of approximately 380 miles (613km) of which approximately 201miles (324km) will be over open water. Norman will be flying past his original destination of Samui and continuing inland, crossing the Trang Kao Mountains, famous for their rubber plantations before arriving at Trang regional airport (VTST).
It is expected that after a short stopover in Trang Norman will then continue with a short hop of around 66miles (106km) to Hat Yai International Airport (VTSS), close to the Malaysian border, where he will night stop before continuing on his epic voyage tomorrow.
