A couple of guys are going to fly from Santa Barbara to Christmas Island, and then on to New Zealand (not without stopping). It is not a short trip. These guys had to take out the four back seats to add X4 the fuel capacity. I’m just glad they are going to try and find some bonefish while they are in Christmas.
The aircraft has been modified slightly for the journey: it was originally designed to carry 335 litres of fuel.
“We will be carrying 264 gallons [1200 litres] mostly housed in a huge rubber ferry tank that occupies the space where the four back seats used to be.
