We are on the road again! Yesterday we departed our airfield Celle-Arloh in the late morning and headed towards France.
Plan and Replan!
Originally, it was planned to remain in Germany for the first night. But unfortunately my friend couldn’t accommodate us in the end. And so we decided to fly all the way into France on the first day. Continue reading →
Well, what happens, if you are a pilot and you don’t know what you should do on your Saturday afternoon? Maybe I should go flying… But I’ve been to the nearby airfields a little bit to often lately…
I do need an idea, what I could do in the local area! Boy, lets draw our flying clubs logo right overhead our home airfield just with a GPS track! So I prepared my GPS as I did already describe in Skywriting in a non-aerobatic airplane? and jumped into 90B. After almost an our twisting and turning, the work was done. What do you think?
By the way, after the “F” I had to land again and start a new track because due to other traffic in the area I couldn’t maintain the needed headings.
almost two weeks ago I gave a presentation in the clubhouse of the Flugsportvereinigung Celle e.V. Motorflug about my flight around the British Isles this summer. The club hosts various protagonists to entertain and at the same time teach their members on flying subjects. This year is about leaving you home airport and embarking on a multi day and probably multi country journey.
Since all members of the club are german, the presentation was held in that language, too.
Unfortunately I was not able to properly synchronize my audio recorder with the video so that you have to life with the GoPro’s internal audio stream.
There are things you have to see at least once in your life. The Auschwitz concentration camp in Poland is one of these! But why?
I assume by now it is well-known that the Nazis did horrible mass murder on the Jews and other minorities. And since it has happened already, it can happen again! There is only one way to prevent it: Remember!
Do to that better Tim and I decided to spend a weekend in Oswiecim / Poland and to visit the remains of the Auschwitz Concentration and Extermination Camp.
It’s been a while since the last activity in the blog. But as I figured out how to use my GOPRO’s I took chance of the latest snow fall here in northern Germany to take 90B up for a flight over that winter wonder land.
Because it will be my fist flight on a snow covered runway watch how I try to figure out, how the airplane reacts. As I can say, my biggest fear was to sink in so deep that the planes would nose over.
During the bad weather season of last winter I got myself a new copilot. Hugo a 6 year old dog I adopted from the animal shelter joined me for his first flight in an airplane ever. After getting used to the noise he seemed to enjoy the ride. As a first trip we did a a 20 minute flight around our home town Celle.
Let keep looking forward to our next adventure while the weather is improving…
On April 19th 2015 I flew 90B to Uetersen/Heist (EDHE) near the mouth of the river Elbe to meet Juergen Pfeifer, one of only two other Luscombe owners in Germany. My copilot this day was my Mom and co-owner.
