We are on the Isle of Wight where we ran into Mr Paul Sengupta. We’ll be departing Sandown tomorrow afternoon in the Twin Com.

A little fleet consisting of two PA28 (SE-KMG, SE-LMZ) and a C172 (SE-LVB) plans to arrive at EGJJ Jersey on Wednesday afternoon 17 July. With the usual caveats related to VFR-flying. We'll be seven pilots, one student and one pax in all and we'll stay overnight. Anyone wishing to say hello can send me a PM and I'll let you know the ETA when known. If all goes well, we'll be travelling on the day from Bonn (Germany) with a customs stop at LFAQ.

The idea is to continue to the UK proper the day after. We haven't decided where, though.

How long do you intend on staying? There's the Sollas fly-in (Outer Hebrides) on the weekend of 27th - 28th July. That could provided an objective as you explore the UK south to north. :wink:

Ah, sorry, I had meant to reply to your PM. I should be in Wales those few days. Maybe you could fly into Cardiff and have a night out in Cardiff! (landing fee £20.40, not sure about parking, not expensive).

We're on a five-day trip Tue-Sat, entering the UK from Jersey on Thursday. We'll either leave on Friday and stop somewhere in the Netherlands or Germany for a night or stay two nights in the UK and have an all-day flight from the UK to Gothenburg, Sweden, on Saturday. So the Outer Hebrides will have to wait for some other time, I'm afraid. Crossing the North Sea from Scotland to Norway is possible, but we prefer not to.

That could be an idea: flying from Wales to somewhere in the east (Duxford? Old Buck?) on Friday and then home Saturday would be doable.

I'll post here on Wednesday when the weather situation and our plans are more solid. We are nine people who have to agree, but it usually works out for the best. This will be my fourteenth week-long European flying adventure and all have been excellent.

Jersey to Cardiff is quite easy, go to the BHD VOR and then up past Exeter, avoiding the Danger Areas. Or don't. Just direct. Whatever. :D

Seems like Slovenia is the "go-to" place these days. So many people flying there in so little time!

Went to Wellesbourne Mountford to support the cause and have lunch. Met up with a pea, or one pea, or 1P !

Think that is what his handle was.... :mrgreen:

Very nice 6, nice lunch, downgraded because of economy sauces. Really........ I know times are tight but it has to be HP and Heinz for brown and red, please :thumleft:
