I joined the gaggle of aircraft participating in Worldflight today on the legs, YBBN-YBCS and YBCS-AYPY. As you would expect, I had full ATC coverage - enjoyed both legs

Grass taxiways are pretty normal for Worldflight due to high levels of traffic. A little while after I took the screenshot I had another six aircraft queued behind me.

To stop the outbound queue interrupting inbound traffic for the aprons and bays, ATC closed holding point B2 at YBCS and had all aircraft taxi to the rwy threshold to get as many as possible off the aprons - also avoided backtracking which would have caused huge delays with large numbers of arriving and departing aircraft.

All good fun!
