Take a ride over the north pole with me on the inaugural Newark-Hong Kong flight 99 on Continental Airlines March 1, 2001. It was the first twin engine commercial plane ever to fly over the pole. On board were dignitaries from China and Russia, whose air space we flew over, and some scenes from Hong Kong itself, including our ride on the famous star ferry, drinks at the Regent at sunset, a visit to the bird auction (this was before the bird flu, as many Chinese keep birds and carried them around in cages)
At the time, it was the longest non-stop in the world at over 8,000 statue miles and took us 15 hours and 43 minutes.
