We flew this trip nearly a year ago and with the weather forecast looking good
we planned for Dinard, then Alderney to Refuel
Dee taxiing G-SE for fuel...must claim drawback!
Power Checks at 25
The Orsett Show was on...horses and stuff...
Leaving the UK coast at 4000'
G-MB in formation (starboard)
G-BN in formation (port)
Coasting in at Cherbourg
Downwind Right for 35
All parked. Landing fees were 12 for SE and BN and 8 for MB (cos its balsa...tee hee)
Getting a taxi in to town proved arduous but eventually (40mins) later we were in town.
Lunch...and Paul got his plain salad!...
Waiting for a cab....if you can, book return cabs wherever possible..took 30mins+ again to get back to the field!
We then took off for Alderney (30mins late) in order to refuel
Passing west abeam EGJJ (Jersey)
Approaching Alderney (EGJA)
Refuelling took longer than expected as the fuelman is on callout
EGJA was NOTAM'd as PPR due to Staff Sickness - we PPR'd like good boys
But this didn't stem the traffic at all for the island.
Taking off, we proceeded to ORTAC before turning for IOW
G-BN and GMB passing Isle of Wight.
A long day...
