The Flying Monkeys

Serious Flying.......
.......Should be Fun!

Le Touquet in the Six!...via Lydd

John asked if we fancied Le Touquet...as we hadn't been there for a while.

Customs (GAR) and Flight plans were filed by Rob & Paul and we all met at the field 0930Z.

So, five up in the Six!.....LFAT via Lydd (for fuel as we were heavy).

The Bata Estate - E.Tilbury

Coalhouse Fort - E.Tilbury

Rochester Airfield - East abeam

Leeds Castle

Landing 03 at Lydd.....used to be 04

Refuelling....If leaving the UK, you can purchase fuel Tax Free at Lydd (saves sending off a drawback form)

...and they've dropped the landing fee to a sensible price at £7.50

200 litres of fuel + landing fee = £150
