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

Robs Mums Birthday: 15-04-2006

It was Robs Mum, Theresa's, birthday so where better to go than Le Touquet!

It wasn't the best weather...a bit cloudy....but we went anyway!

Rob & Theresa up-front

The visibility wasn't great with low cloud, but this cleared up a bit after leaving the English coast at Dover.

Theresa taking some flying instruction from Rob!

Reporting point just passing Boulogne

On final for runway 14 with Le Touquet town on the right.

Theresa & Eric (Robs Mum & Dad) on the Apron at Le Touquet waiting for the taxi to take us into the town.

So a taxi ride into the town, a meal at our favorite restaurant 'Au Bureau' plus the odd glass of Red

wine for Theresa & Eric whilst Rob & Paul stick to the soft drinks for the IMC trip home!

A walk down to check that the beech is still there & then off to the 'Tabac' bar for a coffee

before a taxi ride back to Le Touquet airport.

Theresa has been looking everywhere for a dark coloured 'laundry basket' - she managed to find one in Le Touquet!

Obviously 'Laundry' in French is 'Linge' ! The perfect birthday present!

The weather had deteriorated during the day in the UK but the flight home went well,

the passengers seemed to be happy!

So after securing BN at Thurrock it was off to 'HQ' (The Dog & Partridge) for a celebration drink!

'Happy Birthday'
