Chateau d If:
The flight to Washington DC Dulles was noted earlier.

Also, I think Thursday December 6th was a standard full and complete leg in London.

So they went Northern Ireland to London on the 5th or the 6th.

theschnauzers:
If my guess about the Naval Observatory as a finish line is anywhere close, then the possibility of teams going to the Greenwich Observatory in London would be a possibility as well.

Mount Vernon has became the most-talked destination for now, and one of our member went there and get kicked out of the very tight security guards..

TARFansurvivor:
Do we know how they went from Scotland to Northern Ireland, did they went with boat????

TARFanSurvivor,

You have posed a very interesting question. Let's first examine the possible flights from Edinburgh to both of Belfast's airports on December 5:

EDI BFS U2 482 0657 0742
EDI BFS U2 488 1639 1711
EDI BFS U2 492 2059 2139

EDI BHD BE 682 0731 0801
EDI BHD BE 688 1536 1609
EDI BHD BE 690 1849 1912

There is a reasonable spread of flight opportunities except between 730am and 330pm.

Let's examine how use of the Sterna FASTLINK ferry combined with the Citybus/Ulsterbus would work.

First there is a 3.5 hour bus ride from Edinburgh to Cairnryan on the southwest tip of Scotland. Those schedules are designed to mesh with all ferries except the 4am ferry. Here is the schedule of ferries, each of which takes 2 1/4 hours for the crossing from Cairnryan to Belfast:

0400
0730
1130
1530
1930
2330

So, my bottom line is that AR22 teams could have taken the bus/ferry combination, but most likely they took a flight.
