And if they end up at DME instead of SVO they may be in the wrong general area, and the known "taxi mafia" could charge a lot to get them to the right area...

Oh dear....

CHATEAU,

THANKS FOR THE VERY INTERESTING FLIGHT INFORMATION. WHEN YOU SAY THIS:

So the plan that they had was

TK 1597 leaving IST 7:25 pm, arriving FRA 9:35 pm

I ASK WHY NOT TK415 IST VKO 1707 2042, WHICH PUT ANY TEAMS ON IT IN DOWNTOWN MOSCOW BEFORE 10PM? THIS WAS SCHEDULED TO LEAVE ONLY A HALF HOUR BEFORE TK1597.

TK 415 probably left too early for them to catch.  You have the wrong times for TK 415.   It took off at 4:55 pm on June 7th.  Either that or VKO was blacklisted from race use.

I already mentioned a later flight into VKO that they could have caught if it was allowed and had room:  TK 419

All text in bold match the synchronized swimming in deep watery swimming pools. Nice eye!  :tup:

But what is the fishy meaning of the title quote, "to see the wizard"? Could it be a Quidditch or drinking a strange elixir task? :lol:

The flight that they missed was SU 2305 to SVO which left at 10:35 pm on June 7th.

The next one out is LH 1444 to DME at 7:35 am on June 8th.

I just thought I would add this on the slim chance that there is a requirement that teams have to enter Moscow thru SVO.

The next flight from Frankfort to SVO after SU2305 is SU2307 @ 11;30 am on June 8. It arrives @ 4;30 pm.

James is on the left and normally keeps his hair in a pony tail. Abba is on the right and normally just let's his hair hang free and unfettered..

Other way around. Mark/ABba is in the red.

I assume it's a reference to the song from "The Wizard of Oz," with Dorothy heading out on her quest to find the wizard in order to get back home. So, maybe racers are off to see someone to help them solve a problem (like the rockers?), or a team says this when they are headed to Phil but expect that he will eliminate them and send them home.

A really fast Team could conceivably book tickets on this flight combination to Moscow:

AF 1591 leaving IST at 3:20 pm and arriving CDG at 6:00 pm
AF 1144 leaving CDG at 7:30 pm and arriving SVO at 1:00 am

This shot was taken atop the Гостиница "Балчуг - Кемпински" (Hotel Baltchug Kempinski) looking across the river to the Kremlin.

 :groan:  beat me to it....   :lol:   yep the cossacks with the clue envelope may have done their stand-up at the (5-star) cast/crew hotel.

Edited:  I take that back, now that I look more closely, the video may be a mash-up of two images, as the hotel appears on the wong side of the river, and there does not appear to be a similar space on the hotel to take that view.  Mark it up to creative video editing.

I think you're right!   

It's not from the hotel across the river.  But it is from here:  Moskworetsky Bridge

If you watch the last part, it clearly says "You got your passport?" and one of the rockers (I think James) say "I do not".

So they lose their passport also this time.

I kinda think they are not taking their backpack with them, and leave it in the taxi, but then, the Taxi run off or not waiting there while James and Abba doing the task, so they kinda looking where is our taxi? and make sure that the passport is with them (maybe in the fanny pack) but it's not... if this is true, then it's a disaster...  :duno:
