We had Planned Abbeville before Christmas 2003
but poor weather had put us off.
With the weather looking good off we went via Lydd (to refuel) on the way out
and back via Dover
However after landing at Lydd, we were sent to the static bowser for refuelling.
20mins later we had some fuel and moved the aircraft over by the Tower.

Whilst checking the fuel drain, John had spotted a fuel leak
The fuel filter bowl had become loose.
Paul sorted it with a Multi-Tool and Screwdriver.
Then we were off - Routing via Cap Gris-Nez
After landing on 02 at Abbeville, we taxied over to the Apron and saw the above
Obviously someone with a sense of humour!
We parked and had Lunch
