On the fist leg. The sky above Franken, behind Nürnberg is getting more cloudy.
As I talked to René before the flight, he looked onto the Radar. „The clouds are still nearly closed, but Weiden/Oberpfalz is free to land.“ So we´re staying in 7500 feet over the ceiling. „I would like to jump into this white heep of wool!“
After landing in Weiden, we took a small, tricky briefing about the way to Budejovice. The flighttime for the next leg, will take nearly an hour.
Taxiing in Weiden for the departure to Budejovice
At the border to the Czech Republic. The weatherconditions are still ok. The planned flightlevel 75 will work. Praha Info, Delta-Mike-Romeo-Mike-Romeo-Formation, dobre dan. Praha Info: „We have all your details, squak 4317, take care of parachuting“ on the way to Budweis.
The clouds are growing more and bigger. We´re climbing up to 10.000 feet MSL. The formation is wide feathered. We´re flying in Slalom between the clouds. Nice and fantastic!!
René takes another way. Does he is flying through the clouds?
Bleifrei! Avgas ! 2-Blatt Propeller 3-Blatt Propeller Transponder? Awahh, schwätz net! Gibt’s hier n Bier? Wouw, Wouw? Jungensgespräche / Boystalk Brummm, brummm Was Landegebühr 2 €? Ha, da muß ich doch gleich noch ein paar machen!
The time has come to say „sayonara“. At the border to the Czech Republic and Germany we´re giving up the formation. René will inform the FIS and close the flightplan. For us, we have a calm flight back to Heubach. Thinking about the day. What a day! And we´re still thinking about the sentence from Antoine de Saint Exupery
A nice Day, and a fantastic flight Powered by WD´s Fascination
