Flying around….

Last Saturday, after dropping Tamara off at home (she had spent the night with me), I decided to stop by the local flying club. It’s the same club that I’m a member of since 1983 and where I first learned to fly. One of my buddies, Michael, was there and invited me along for a local roundtrip together with one of his friends. Since the weather was fantastic, I jumped at the opportunity.

This is a view just after take-off of the now empty American army base… it has been deserted for around 2 years now.

More and more wind farms are being set up everywhere, destroying the looks of our beautiful landscapes…(can you catch that I don’t like them? lol)

We flew over the Main and Neckar rivers, wanting to see how the flooding was. In the mean time the rivers are pretty much back to normal, as you can tell (this is the Main River near Miltenberg).

A view of one of the many castles/fortresses that are found all over the place….

The balloonists were taking advantage of the weather as well…

Today I won’t go to work until noon because I have a job thing to do during night time, which includes a flight (checking the night lighting at an airfield). The past days the weather was cloudy with some now melted snow, today looks promising.

On the weekend I think I finally get some much needed housework done…

    hi Bursti! glad to see you here.

    Just want you to know that I didn’t ignore your comment… I was happy to read it and see you visiting. I’m not blogging much anywhere anymore…. sad but true.
