Today we go back home. Back to the cold and wet autumn weather. Holiday is over. I really enjoyed it. We had a nice team (although there was some tension between a few people in the group), overall good weather, nice views, too many drinks (but no headaches), a great plane and a lot of fun.

We have 2 options: leave the planes here and have them picked up by the owners or try to fly them back. After waiting for a few hours and monitoring the weather reports and forecasts we decided to fly them back home. Issue one of today: how do we get to the aircraft??? Yesterday, it was quite easy: we were instructed to park our planes in front of the terminal building. But today, we are at the other side of the airport and you can not just “walk over there”. The local flying school helped out. They provided “transportation”: yep, a golf cart…
