Lausanne, 7000 feet above

I had my Biennial Flight Review* today, in a very windy, chilly, atmosphere. It all went well. We’re so privileged to be able to enjoy such a view only minutes after having left the city’s busy streets. Picture taken at approx. 7000ft above Lausanne, Switzerland with my iPhone 6 Plus.

(*: in fact, to be precise and verbose, I should say EASA revalidation license proficiency check (LPC) of my single-engine piston class rating)

The “Royal” DHC-1 Chipmunk

Nice video from the British Pathé archives: nineteen year-old Prince Charles in flightsuit taking flying lessons in Royal Air Force DHC-1 Chipmunk, from RAF base Tangmere. Watch here.

(I have had the chance to see (and fly in formation with) this very same DHC-1 Chippie during the 2017 Bull Chip Meet in Abbeville, France.)
