Hawaii Nonstop Flight

The Pacific Golden Plover (Kolea) offers seasonal migration flights between Alaska and Hawaii.

They have been recorded at FL200 at over 100 mph, with 2 WFPS (wing flaps per second) during the 2,500 mile nonstop.

And they can't swim.

Their motto: Ai no ke kolea a momona hoi i Kahiki!
