Here are flights from Airwise.

The choices seem to be via Miami, LAX, and Dulles.

I'm so glad they were here in Brazil again! I agree with charlierose, though. Two legs in S„o Paulo is too much. I higly doubt it.  Maybe there's a lot of Brazil in the preview because it's the first leg and they haven't edited the rest yet.

The airport is a bit of a puzzle. I used GE to compare the cap with various airports around Sao Paulo and found a match in Campo de Marte (code SBMT). The editing would have us think Varig landed there but from this description that seems unlikely. I'm thinking maybe Marte was the site for the nerd-hangar caps, but I haven't found a match yet.

I'm listening to an interview with Phil , download here @ the Paul Harris show
www.harrisonline.com/audio/philkeoghan_tarfe.mp3

Phil describes TAR 9 grueling , exhausting  like season 1 , it knocked him out

Can hardly wait  {|

In this shot I see a green pad where the helicopter sits.

I found a place near the airport identified by Slowhatch that has those green pads and the hangars too.

Those dancers sure LOOK Russian to me. They are without a doubt Eastern European, and it seems unlikely (to me at least) that they'd throw another leg into eastern Europe...

Some other thoughts & a revised route map with confirmed/conjectured dates added...

EP1: Denver (Red Rocks Amphitheatre) (11/7) to Ottawa, Canada
EP2: Ottawa to Sao Paulo, Brazil (bridge, airstrips, yellow helicopter)
EP3: Sao Paulo to Segesta, (Sicily) Italy (ruins)
EP4: Segesta to Corinth, Greece (diving into canal)
EP5: Corinth to Moscow, Russia (St. Basilís, ballet)
EP6: Moscow to India (elephants)
EP7: India to Perth/Rottnest, Australia (11/24) (newspaper)
EP8a: Perth/Rottnest to Darwin (11/25) (newspaper/sighting) TBC
EP8b: Darwin to Adelaide (11/26) to Lopburi, Thailand (masks, monkeys, Buddha)
EP9: Lopburi (11/27-28??) to Tokyo (11/29-30??) (shopping district, Mt. Fuji)
EP10: Tokyo to Anchorage (12/1) (sighting, red plane)
EP11: Anchorage (12/2) to Denver (12/3)

We may be missing a location or two in the beginning somewhere (11/7-11/24) Ė the dates donít add up. Flights will chew up some days, but not enough to cover 17 days between Denver and Perth/Rottnest. Maybe a couple episodes in India like they've done before. A while back, there was a spoiler about going from Denver to Ottawa? (Puddin from OC Register 12/5) This would add a lot of mileage, which would make sense. No connections thru Ottawa to Sao Paolo, right? So they couldnít have flown from Denver to Sao Paulo thru Ottawa. I toyed with idea of westward trip around globe, but timing doesnít make sense. Post in Spoilers yesterday mentioned the desperate couple in the Adelaide airport trying to get to Singapore. When they didnít, they used their previously booked flight to Sydney. Makes me think they were just trying to connect to Lopburi or elsewhere in Thailand (via Singapore OR Sydney) instead of going to Singapore as a destination, so Iíve taken Singapore out of the route map. Must have just been a faster flight going through Singapore. This would certainly be a grueling race (like TAR1) like Phil described in the interview Ė it is ALL over the map.

fwiw~
Amazing again!

The ninth edition of "Amazing Race" began filming - and it promises a return to the classic "race around the world." Reports say that the race began in Denver and quickly moved on to Ottawa, Ontario.

That's true... the date of the sighting in Ottawa doesn't jibe with the start date of the race, and that story might have been the source of info for the OC article. Besides, Ottawa (no offense) seems like kind of a sucky starting destination -- I can picture the teams opening the envelope and saying: "Ottawa? Crap! I didn're realize we were on the family edition..."

But I dunno... I won't write off Ottawa entirely just yet...

i just looked through the skyguide for november. in order for them to go from denver to ottawa they would have to do some really creative flying. if the race began on nov 7 and the candian sighting was nov5 it wasnt them
