You have to scrap it into parts first, then gift the three parts one at a time.

My plan is to do at least 100 jobs, that way I can get the Tiksi achievement done at the same time. I had my big planes filling Seoul with layovers, but the Tiksi round trip takes so long, all my Class 1s are still making the long trek back to Seoul.

Have you completed the Arctic Exposure achievement? If not, load up your class 1 Ms to earn the achievement plus the event bux.

Yes, but that's the fun and strategic part of PP, having very different planes in your hangar, ready for different type of events.

I first used Mapples and bought Yakoutsk, already having Seoul.
Then, I decided to use P planes to accelerate the pace. Bought 5 kangaroo P stalking the market. and had to choose which planes to put in the hangar to give them the slots, as well for a couple Sequoias P I had in my hangar.

But dammit I saw I had to buy another airport because they couldn't do Seoul-Yakoutsk lie the Mapples, so I bought Kirkousk.
Then I decided to buy Shengyang as it is a closer class 3 and fully upgraded it and closed Kirkousk.
That's where the fun is imho.
If you just have to push a fleet of Sequoias to half a dozen class 3 airports, where's the fun after a few hours of play?

I'm still using my Class 1 Cargo planes to deliver the remaining Nagasaki jobs ... And then I'll be able to put away those planes and replace with Class 1 Passenger planes. LOL

You'll do fine, you're sitting right under me at #13. And I was struggling for 21st place in the San Diego event, finished 22nd I think. This one I think if we commit to it, we can make top ten. Unless all the heavy hitters come out of the woodwork and decide to take over the leader board.

If you want to speed things up and can spare a few Bux, try boosting you planes when empty on their back trip.
I noticed that boosting my empty Roos back to Shenjiang just after they unloaded in Tiksi (35 minute trip) only cost 1 Bux.

Why do you even bother?
Just kill the poor b.stards that have been sitting in your airports for 48h!
It's not like you need the coins, just take the last Bux jobs and close up, no?
