    21:30:16    17/02/1999
            To find DR on Celesticomp V I needed to know time at DR.  To find time I
    used the old D=rt were r=kt and assumed 95.4 mi was nm.  Found time from
    start to turn point was 10hrs 57 min 56 sec which gave the ZT time of
    06:30:16  Plug in data in Celesticomp and out came DR.
                                                            ZT Time & Date	     		GMT & Date
