    by  • 11th July 2011 • post

Decided on spending most of the flight routing along French side, not touching the scary Belgian airspace, oh my, chart for it doesn’t have a...

Ivan flown the outbound leg and he landed on deserted LFRC about 4pm local, the only a/c on the ground was PA28 from flying...
