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
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
