PIK-Oban-Mull - PIK (Merged)

Postby DJ17 on Fri 21 Oct 2011, 8:04 pm

Got an invite last month to take a trip up to Mull via Oban in a Pa28 and to hopefully formate with 2 x floatplanes Ce172 'G-DRAM' and Super Cub 'N5362X' en-route.

Pics aren't great due through perpex (my excuse) but the scenery up there is absolutely stunning.

We managed to locate the 2 floatplanes just north of Oban near Castle Stalker (of Monty Python And The Holy Grail Fame) and then we all set course for Oban, anyway, enough 'talk', here's the pics -

Castle Stalker and Floatplane -

3 Floatplanes on the ramp, not often you'll see that in the UK -

En-route Oban - Mull -

A 'splash 'n' go' on the Sound of Mull -

Sheep on the runway so you've got to do a low run down the runway to chase them off, note the 2 floatplanes top middle and the sheep adjacent the 07 threshold -

Downwind right hand for 25 -

Part II to follow.

What a post! Is there a candidate for photo of the week with pictures 6 & 7?

Is that Cub based at Loch Earn? Wife loves the place so dont need an excuse to visit!

Afraid not, the pilot was an Austrian Lufthansa A340 pilot so I assume he keeps it near his home.
