No adventure flying, just relax and stay in the warm weather. T-shirt, shorts and flip-flops. We took over the C172 with glass cockpit in Bankstown from Smith Aviation, a recommendable plane.

Île d’Oleron in France, a sunshine weekend with oysters and a Citroen Mehari

It was in spring 2014 when we flew again to Île d’Oléron LFDP. This time we booked in advance a Citroen Mehari to be more flexible. The car was delivered to the airfield of St. Pierre d’Oléron.

Landing at Lundy Island airstrip

In summer 2013 we landed on Lundy Island airstrip. Our friends Karen and Chris took a video with their smartphone-camera.
View from the spectactors.

Lovely to visit again.

Due to the rough field pilots do not like to land on Lundy airstrip because you can break the nose wheel. Has happend. With a good technic you can lower the probability that something happens. My first approach was to find out how rough the field is and to run off the sheep.
