I felt kinda sad ditching my loyal little Wallabys and Navigators. I got over it.
Thanks for the advice!The Mohawk came in really handy for this event!

I closed all my South America airports a LONG time ago.
Just discovered I can't drop a Blimp in Lima, won't make it to Salvador from there. (was thinking of feeding Salvador jobs from LA)

1x Wallaby P
1x Griffon C
1x Airvan M
1x Kangaroo M
1x Birchcraft M
1x Pearjet M

Should I get rid of any of them?(I will most probably get rid of the griffon!)

I also got rid of all my Class 1 Airports!

Now, my question is, why do all guys say that having C/P is better than having M planes?I like the M ones because I am able to fill them much easier!Is there any sort of drawback for having more M planes than C/P planes?
I would get rid of the Navigator, Wallaby, Griffon and Airvan. They're not gonna make you much money, and you're at a point where you really need to save up coins & Bux.

Keep the Kangaroo & Birchcraft (in the Hangar if not actively in use), they're good cheap workhorses to have around, even when you get to a higher level they'll be useful for shuttling people and for those flight crew events to smaller cities.

With the Pearjet, try to load 5 going to the same place for the 25% bonus.

Using M planes or C/P planes is personal preference. Use whichever is easier for you. Loading C/P planes is easier upfront compared to M planes. My fleet is mostly M planes (with only 1 C and 1 P).

I pulled all my blimps and mohawks and have started returning my aeroeagles into service. One thing I have learned from events is do NOT get rid of old planes. Always keep the best class 1 and class 2 planes in the hanger for times like this. My blimps get a bit of a break with this event after going full bore on the last two.

I put 2 AeroEagles on it and then they closed London and one of them was grounded for a bit. Grrr. I think London is open again so I better back to it...

I guess I'll have to put the blimps back into the hangar. They're slow, but I really liked how they're so BIG and easy to spot on my plane list, making it very quick to zero in on the event planes. I keep Blimp, Seaknight, Kangaroo and Birchcraft around for small city events.

Finally got my reward for Norilsk (ranked #14).

Yeah, blimps are cool. Hoping to get them back in service for the next event.

Not sure who I was battling with since yesterday but I was 9th then got bumped to 10th and was slowly creeping up on 9th today. Last I saw I was 10th with 534 and 9th had 534. Either way I ended up 9th!

I found myself in a late battle for position on this event. After bouncing around in the low 30s with occasional jumps to the high 20s, I decided to settle for 34th place which is where I was this morning. That is, until I checked the leaderboard and saw that a couple players were making a late push. The competitive urge kicked in, and I had to kill time waiting while my car was in the shop... finished at #27. Can't remember the number of jobs - 415 or so?

Time to check out South America.
