#21 - Rarotonga NCRG - Bora Bora NTTB

The Flight from Rarotonga International Airport to the Bora Bora Airport was 1 hour and 35 minutes long. The distance between these two airports is 572 nm. The weather on this flight was mostly clear sky with few clouds on departure and strong winds on arrival. Due to strong winds on arrival, but also a very short runway on Bora Bora, the first approach was not successful, so we had to go around and try again. The second approach was much better and the landing was successful.
