I certainly want them to (I hate it that they don't get credit for being first last leg, and so far only one team as ever been first both parts of a TBC leg and that was last seasons Eric and Jeremy.  Still burned that it only counts as one win for them, so that they didn't tie Colin & Christie's 6 eg won (since of course they didn't have TBC legs, then).

thanks for the clear pictures banzai !!

The sprint promo ( same as aol ) is up. also the pitstop cam is working, assumes the teams are shopping in Madagascar.

eta: no one ever reads what I say  :'(
:lol: I think it could be Rob too because at some point he says that he hates following the blondes ........then I can see karma boomerang as his car breaks down. Lucky for him it looks like the Cho's are really " LOST ".
I hope when Chateau gets some time we can get pitstop estimates because it sure looks like T/J are slightly ahead of the BQ's. And the clue tells us that they are the two teams that are the front runners.

I see it as
T/J
BQ's
R/K
Bama's
Chos ba bye

There are about 18 flights listed for travel from Helsinki to Kiev.  Most leave in the morning and connect through various airports.  Finnair has the only non-stop direct flight between Helsinki and Kiev.

SAS
LV 9:00AM          VIA  RIX          ARRIVE 3:20PM

CZECH AIRLINES
LV 7:35AM          VIA CPH & PRG  ARRIVE 2:25PM

HUNGARIAN AIRLINES
LV 9:30AM          VIA  BUD          ARRIVE 3:25PM

FINNAIR
LV 10:00AM         DIRECT            ARRIVE 12:00N

KLM
LV 6:15AM         VIA AMS             ARRIVE 1:30PM

LUFTHANSA
LV 7:10AM          VIA FRA             ARRIVE 1:05PM

LV 8:35AM          VIA MUC            ARRIVE 4:15PM

LV 1:05PM           VIA MUC            ARRIVE 10:40PM

LV 4:15PM           VIA MUC            ARRIVE 10:40PM

LV 6:25PM            VIA FRA            ARRIVE 12:45AM

AIRFRANCE
LV 9:25AM            VIA CDG           ARRIVE 7:20PM

LV 12:15PM           VIA CDG           ARRIVE 7:20PM

If they leave immediately on the next leg after receiving the "keep on racing" message after rappelling the Olympic Stadium tower, we might assume that they would be going directly to the airport.  From what I have seeen I estimate that the first teams would be completing this task in early afternoon, so the first reasonable flight might be 4:15PM Lufthansa flight getting them to Kiev at 10:40PM.  Or they might make the 6:25PM flight getting them to Kiev at 12:45AM.

If they don't make these flights, it would be bed down at the airport for one of the morning flights which also would mean that all five teams probably would end up on the same flight and arrive in Kiev at the same time.  Probably around noon or early afternoon.

puddin--way back at the start of the episode 9 thread (in a crazy burst of newbie enthusiasm!) I did some airport work...I'll re-summarize here:

Basically, according to Lonely Planet ,  you have three choices for airports to fly into: Kiev metro (5 miles outside the city, Kiev Borispol (25 miles from the city), or interestingly, Odessa, which is only 7 miles from Kiev.

Checking both Amadeus and Airwise for Saturdays and June 17th--the first flights of the day seem to boil down to a couple of options:

1)--Kiev-Borispol: Dep 9:25 via Warsaw, Arr 1:35 (they show this flight leaving from the metro and borispol airports with the same flight # so could be "taxis to the wrong airport time"!

2)--Kiev-Odessa: Dep 8:25 via Vienna, Arr 2:00 (while this is a later arrival time, you are 18 miles closer to Kiev! Never mind the Odessa stuff--it is a LONG way away!

edited to say:
G-man beat me to it with much more complete flight info! :waves:

A couple of things though--do all of those flights go on a Sat.? I seemed to find limited flights on the weekends...

And I think they're actually doing the rapelling about 10-10:30 PM so probably are stuck with the AM flights..

Maybe you could see what you think about Odessa??

If the front pack will go directly to the airport, whatever it is, will take the 1st fligh at 9:45 am
because I think Helsinki-Vantaa s NOT that far from Olympic Stadium.   :tup:

Using these two shots and the 8:30 time from the clock I could tell that the BQs arrived at the cluebox 24 min after the boys.

Then all the teams will bunch at the airport.  This is somewhat supported by seeing T/J and the Cho brothers at the opera house together

It now sure looks like The Models and the Beauty  Queens are going to lose whatever lead they have and we will see a typical BUNCH POINT at the Helsinki airport with all five teams getting the same flight to Kiev. Since sunset on June 16 is not until 10:50PM, there is still plently of daylight for other teams to complete the rapell down the Olympic tower.

Arriving in Kiev at 1:35PM, I think the scenario may look like this:

After arriving go to the Rodina Mat for the first directions.

Proceed to the Densa Military Base for the ROADBLOCK task (tank driving)

Proceed next back to Kiev and locate some location for DETOUR clue:

-- - COOL :   Shevchenko Opera House,     OR

     HOT   :   Rap Session at Magma

Finally, proceed to pit stop at Far Caves Monastery.

Models and Beauty Queens arrive just as the sun is setting at 9:12PM

Chos end up last and are eliminated.

http://www.visitkievukraine.com/attractions/caves.htm

The Caves Monastery is Kievís premier tourist attraction and stands on a hill overlooking the Dnipro River. Itís divided into 2 areas:

Upper Lavra
Owned by the government the Upper Lavra contains a number of churches and museums. The admission fee gives access to most of the churches but some require additional payment.

Great Bell Tower
Measuring just over 96m the Great Bell Tower competes for dominance of Kievís skyline with nearby Rodina Mat. For a small fee itís possible to climb the tower for an unequalled view of the monastery and Kiev.

Museum of Historical Treasures
Situated at the rear of the Upper Lavra, this museum houses showcases historic items, precious stones, metalwork and jewelry. Most notable is its spectacular collection of Scythian gold.

Museum of Micro-miniatures
This museum displays the miniature creations of Russian artist Mykola Syadristy. The exhibits, viewed through microscopes, include a chess set on the head of a pin and the worldís smallest electric motor.

Lower Lavra
Beneath the Lower Lavra are hundreds narrow passages and caves where monks once lived and worshiped. Over 100 of them lie mummified in niches that line the subterranean streets.

Entrance to the caves is free, but most visitors purchase a candle at the entrance for a couple of hyrvnias. Women are asked to cover their heads and cameras are not allowed.

Thanks, I was looking at that but just not sure.

So, Rodina Mat is probably at the end of the leg.
