Jun 30 2015 – Nice airfield, shame about the red tape…


Nice drive from near Strasbourg to Buochs by Lucerne. As it is half civil, half military, there was much uncertainty as to whether we could fly there or not, with contrary advice coming from all quarters. Eventually got the go-ahead from the club chairman (thanks Urs) but too late to fly. Watched some interesting comings and goings, including test flying of the Pilatus PC-24 from the factory on the other side of the road. Hope to launch tomorrow but it seems we are too big to park overnight on an airfield with a 2,000m runway and 400 acres, so will relocate to ??? after what we hope will be a good alpine flight. Stay tuned…
