Cant you fly across Siberia to get to America.No need to cross the Atlantic.Offcourse you cant do it with the engine off.It is not type of plane I prefer - I still love flying with engine off - but flight across Atlantic is impressive. I suppose it was not "serial" plane, because for over 2 500 km flight leg you need at least increased fuel tanks. Would be interesting to know fuel consumption at the 260 km/h cruise speed and fuel tanks volume. My estimation is 1x pilot aboard + 200 lit fuel capacity.
I , "WISH" i was as smart as you ; gravity has bin rather UnkindLOL, his level of risk tolerance is clearly higher than mine! That was some skilled, high-precision flying, and the video is great, but his proximity to people and structures made the hair on my neck stand up on end.
