    Excuse me Sir, are those aeroplane tyre tracks on the roof of your Motorhome?

    A fly-in yesterday evening at Ripple near Deal in East Kent. As well as a barbecue and ice cream made on the farm, it was a good chance to catch up with flying friends and meet some Motorhomers and tuggers who were staying there.

    The post reminded me.......

    The post reminded me.......

    A few weeks ago, I was landing at Le Touquet (where we wished to clear Customs before flying on to Cambrai). Those of you that go to Le Touq' will know that about 500m from the threshold, there's a road bridge crossing one runway's centre-line.

    So, nicely established on 'finals', I noticed a motorhome driving across the bridge. "It's got two solar panels and a Sat' dome.... expensive rig, that" says I. To which my mate replies, "You and your damn motorhomes, can you please just concentrate on landing the bloody plane!!"

    So; Monsieur le Camping-Car went on his way, not realising that a fellow mo-homer was above him at a safe height in case the engine cut!!!
