Made it to Greenland, which has an interesting approach, even in good weather, which fortuneately it has been of late. Next stop will be another long over water leg to Goose Bay. At least Goose should have some visual landing aids as the minimum, unlike the stop over in Greenland, which was a visual approach from ATC over the glacier... really helpful!
