It is brilliant to have Steve with us on board. His journey from Dalston to Galapagos via Colombia and Ecuador mainland took a few hours longer than planned due to the torrential downpour here on San Cristobal this afternoon.
His plane made 3 attempts to land but pulled up each time due to poor visibility ( there are no lights at this airport), turned around and returned to Ecuador.
After refuelling there the pilot tried again later in the afternoon, with success.
So here he is in the cockpit with a cup of tea...and Rob. We are set.
