Hi all
Last Monday saw the Spanish Army conduct there 1st winter with Skis flight into the Sierra De Guadarrama Mountain range North of Madrid.
The training exercise was to allow 4 pilots to fly against the winds up against the mountain slopes.
They also tried to find some snow which was limited, to practice some landings.
Thank you to the crew of "Talud16" for allowing me to join them on this training flight.

Maybe they should have popped over to Lossie, and played with 27 Sqn, when they were doing their snow training in the snowy Cairngorms :biggrin: Nice set of pics.
"Nice pics mate" comments only! No criticism please.

Very nice set of the 'ski-bird'. It's between 9 & 10 for my best pick!. At least you found enough snow to bring the UK to a standstill.
Were these taken in the Los El-Sparta region of Espania?
