The Flight to Istanbul

In order to be on time for the slot we left the hotel early

All went according to plan, with VAT refund, fuel, handling fees payment etc...

When we got to the plane, we saw the force of the wind the night before as some of them had moved, some had their over removed etc...

We only lost a cover of a static wick on the Mustang.

We were right on time for the slot above the airport, but them we got sent to an arrival that took us about 50 nm over the black sea and following an airliner at a 2 minutes interval...what a busy place..we saw close to 15 target on our TCAS at a 12 nm range.

But the path took us above Istanbul at 3000 feet, what a great sightseeing flight

2 captains very involved and concentrated on the flight

a very well dressed group of Journeyers

This is what we have done until today
