Ad Hoc fly-ins

We’ve just had the new UK restrictions announcement. No swinging and no orgies (well not N of the Thames, which makes it a true social disaster) – except within your own family.

That, is hilarious!

Le Touquet was lovely, as always. A nice bunch of 4 of us. Masks (and mask police checking them) on the 2 or 3 main streets, but restaurants packed inside so clearly a lot of people have decided this thing doesn’t exist

Airport was fairly busy, with a fair few Brits

G-SKYF is a curious one. It is a TB10 (?) once owned by Skyforce Avionics which was sold to Honeywell. They developed the KMD150 and KMD550, and possibly did something on the KLN94 etc boxes. This was used as a test/demo aircraft for these products

Nice walk to town – this is a great attraction of LFAT… or you can rent bikes

Always good to see others with good taste in aircraft

Again nice pictures Peter, looks like a nice day to be in the beach !

My last visit to LFAT was just hectic: I was waiting for convective weather to clear up, trying to catch customs before they go home and planning to land at Nantes before sunset (landing at 1859LT, took some tailwind to nearest runway, cleared customs, toilette, departed at 1910LT, landed 5min before sunset near Nantes), so I am probably going back again to L2K this weekend for a relaxed full day

We will be in L2K tomorrow.

Nice day at L2K this Sunday, heard few aircraft went as it was hazy mid-channel but we had a nice 3h swim, the beach was crowded with “parisiens” and the nearby place was running a horse competition !

I also paid a tribute to LFAT NDB and raised a toast, that antenna saved my life once !

I have not been there yet but it smells a Twin Otter and not Lands End terminal nor Outer Hebrids weather/beach

Yeah it was easy

Crowded tonight. Hard to get food in the evening. But easy to maintain spacing.

Trying to work out when the wx will move in tomorrow morning.

I had a load of fun getting out of there this morning

No taxis so a 30 min walk in heavy rain, backpack etc soaked. Airport totally absolutely tight, not allowing engine start “before the controller is ready” so I could de-mist the interior. Everything inside the plane soaked.
