The Netherlands National Softball Team flew to Tampa in Florida (USA) on Saturday, March 1 to start a 25-day trip. In Florida, the team will play 23 games in 20 days with the first game scheduled for coming Tuesday in Clearwater.

The team ensembled early on Amsterdam Schiphol Airport for the Britsh Airways-flight to London in England. Players and staff-members had to be at the airport around 7:30 AM. After checking in and going through customs, the team left in a Boeing 737-400 at 10:42 AM and touched down in London at 10:34 AM local time (London is one hour ahead of the Netherlands), arriving at the gate at 10:42 AM.

From the British capital, the team flew to Tampa in a Boeing 777. The flight departed at 12:55 PM local time, touched down on the runway of Tampa International Airport at 5:50 PM local time (11:50 PM Dutch time) and arrived at the gate five minutes later, completing a journey that lasted exactly ten hours.
