    Hahaha, Bessville! I should consider doing this, mostly for my sanity. Trying to keep a streak alive is a bit stress-inducing.

    LOL. Yep ... the airplane that arrived just asked me for waaaaayyy too much corn. I ended up obliging somehow, even though my barn was full to bursting. Trying to hold onto all building materials for now, due to about to hit level 60.

Give me a minute and I'll try to find one and link to it....

    Edit: Here's a thread mentioning sending empty planes and the achievement (with DD and Graylady as the trusted sources). Personally, it irks me a tiny bit that people can send empty planes and maintain their streak....feels like cheating! LOL
    Somehow I missed this before! If this is true, then maybe I can sometimes send away a plane without penalty? It has become a bit of a pressure cooker, even though I usually only do one plane a day. I would hope to maintain my streak, but occasionally I hold onto a plane for many hours, and send it off at the last minute, but sometimes the next plane arrives before I am ready for it. This doesn't happen often, but it has happened, and in those cases, it might be helpful to be able to send an empty plane away.

    Some of you guys have sent loads of planes! Graylady with 3373 and cdosr with 2671 ... kitty with 1137, barbguinn with 1368!

    Instead of sending the plane partially filled, sending it back empty, you would have kept your 10 planes progress and needed only 5 mores for the achievement.

    I just read Graylady's response in that other thread, kitty, (quoted above) and indeed it does look like we can send away empty planes without penalty! Hopefully that is still the case.

    Once I reached the achievement I stopped with trying to fill planes consecutively. Maybe because I did it when I was at a much lower level (30+?) so I felt it was quite a struggle. Plus I am not part of a co-op so can't request more help. At one point I nearly caved and used T-cash to fill crates, but someone managed to help me in time.
