Social distancing from 1500 feet

Navy Blue wing – it was a sunny day, which plays tricks with the photo lighting.

Yes; great photos. But, hang on, if everybody is avoiding the virus by flying at 1500ft, aren’t you all going to collide?

The TMA around here requires PPR so I just don’t bother for local flights. Talking to traffic information helps avoiding collisions too.

@Dimme we had the same idea:
OAT 7°C + DP -8°C (36%RH), Visibility was basically unlimited, I could see the bridge 48NM away on climbout from home from around 1700ft (to get above the small hills to the west).

Kullaberg

Landskrona

Malmö

Turning Torso

The bridge

The southwestern sand-banks near Falsterbo

The Viking stone alignment / boat of Ales Stenar

What a great day! Was there much traffic in the air today?

You are quite lucky… in Belgium we are just stuck on the ground

It was last saturday. It was dead quiet on the radio, probably more GA than airlines.

I put up a video from the flight. I might also go out for a flight today, it snowed!



We need a Swedish fly-in. Seriously.
