Red Alert and taking Gerold's advice


Recommended Posts

Gerold suggested a move south for some nicer weather when flying.

So it is down to KBLU and his forecasting was spot on.

Some much better weather Gerold, thanks for the advise!

Usually risky to follow my advise. But in this case you were lucky. And I was, too, as you did not just give us beautiful scenery shots, but also another chapter of the book "compare sim with real life", which fits perfectly. Makes it another great post!

Cheers Gerold, I always listen to other peoples polite advise and as you can see it was well warranted.

Great set of airports to fly to and from in that cool old bird Martyn!  And as always later, nice tour.

One of my favourite flights Jack, I have done it many times in different aircraft.

 

Thanks Erik and Jack for your great comments.
