The expedition was made on a third party website as many things in elite dangerous are. Nearly 600 other players signed up to make the expedition that was over 22,000 light years from earths and the populated areas of the Milky Way galaxy. It took all of them around 3 weeks to make the journey and meet each other at the way points set up along the way. It culminated in that display in front of the ship that was placed in the game and named after him by the game developers. Despite some attempted issues from Griefers who tried to take the station offline it was a success and lots of money was raised

The Grim Reapers do not fly Elite, but you guys are all welcome to come and fly with us on DCS World any time.

My Uncle was a Mirage technician in the 80’s until all the Mirage systems were retired few years ago, so now he is retired also.
