One hour flight this morning gets us to Calais. Weather in the UK was very good but as we coasted out the clouds came down and we were forced to start the crossing at 2000ft. Shortly after the clouds lifted and we were able to climb to a much more sensible altitude.
Next stop after Calais was Chateau Thierry which was reached in a little under 2 hours. Unfortunately Ian lost radio contact with Les and I shortly after take off. We could hear him clearly but not the other way round. Fine for us but Ian was sure that we were messing him about.
The trip south was uneventful apart from the occasional rain shower and a bit of cloud dodging.
Chateau T is a wonderful little grass strip and the natives are pretty friendly although for some strange reason we weren’t allowed to purchase fuel so we will need to pop into another local airfield in the morning.
