A couple of posts ago, I mentioned that I spent a brilliant afternoon last Monday taking Wim’s grand-children and their dad for some short local flights in 56NE. Ed, Wim’s son, had his camera with him and took quite a few shots of the kids etc, which Sophie has just sent me copies of. I think they are great, so here they are.
First, Noa, who’s 12, and Yasmin, 8 as they arrived at the airfield.
Yasmin taken while I was getting 56NE ready for the first flight.
Me getting Noa buckled-up and ready for take off.
Wim getting The Red Baron ready to take off, because when I took Noa, Wim took off first and flew in front of us.
Noa and me after we’d landed and taxied back.
Getting Yasmin in and tightly belted up, which was a bit difficult as she was so small compared to the seat belts.
All ready to begin taxying for take off.
Yasmin and me after we’d landed and taxied back to the apron.
And finally, a shot of Yasmin after she’d had her flight. Do you think she enjoyed it?
It was great fun with the kids and I really enjoyed it. Sophie said that flying was their main talking point for the whole of the next day, which really tickled me, I have to say, and I’m really pleased that they enjoyed it too 😀
