Flat Earth: The Rid­dle of the Pan Am Flight 50

The Pan Am Flight 50 flew around the globe and made the fol­low­ing stops:

  • North Pole
  • Green­land
  • Lon­don
  • Cape Town
  • South Pole
  • Auck­land

Plot­ting the flight on a FE map shows a huge prob­lem. The flight went from the South Pole, to Auck­land and then to San Fran­cis­co. Why would an air­plane from the 1970s fly from the South Pole first to Auck­land and then to San Fran­cis­co? If we plot it on the FE map, this rid­dle be­comes more ob­vi­ous to us.

Of course on a globe Earth map, this flight path makes per­fect sense.
