    Here is another picture of Gago's plane, that is me in the green jacket and my wife in the blue shirt.

    He alighted near St. Peter's and Paul's rocks and was taken aboard a Portuguese ship. He used the single LOP landfall approach to find those rocks. See attached GoogleEarth file.

    Gary,

    Did Gago do any island hopping like Chichester or just the Atlantic crossing ? See picture of the plane. It took guts to do what Gago did at that time.

    Actually it was Gago Coutinho in 1922 crossing the South Atlantic. Chichester didn't use it until 1931 crossing the Tasman Sea but he is credited in English language manuals as the originator or the technique.
