A Storch on a trip ...

Hello everyone,

I would like to share with you the last trip of our storch, or more precisely Morane-Saulnier MS506L.
Indeed, the association AVA (Albert Vintage Aircraft) based on the Albert field in the Somme near Amiens ( France ), was asked by our English friends, to make the crossing for the joiners on the occasion of the Battle of Britain Air Show, by Aero Legends, at Headcorne Field on Saturday, June 30, and North Weald Air-Britain participation on Sunday, July 1st.

It was an unforgettable weekend and a great success for this young association.
So what better than to share with you these wonderful moments aboard this aircraft.

Everything begins on Friday, June 29 at Albert-Bray Airport - LFAQ.
The morning is devoted to the preparation of the machine.

Flight plan. It is decided that we will take the direction of Abbeville then Berck sur Mer, before going up the coast to Cap Gris Nez.

Image

3:35 pm, it is already time to leave.

Image

Image

But before taking the direction of Abbeville, we make a stop on Amiens, to refuel.

Image

4:15 pm, the full is done, the mae west is strapped ... it left for a flight of about 2 hours, depending on the direction of the wind .... in the direction of Lashenden.
