    Set 3 complete Bombay to Calcutta (or whatever the youngsters call them today...) Very misty early on when leaving Bombay Tower view, strictly IFR A small strip in the middle of a jungle, interesting! A few more facilities at Calcutta Time for a curry and Elephant beer!

    Here we go again then Set 1, divided into 7 legs to suit the times I have available to fly. Settled on the trusty Kingair because I know how long it takes to get anywhere in my dear old Dragon Rapide I'd only get bored.... First flight, a quick jump over the Channel to Paris On to Turin Love the Alps For some strange reason I decided to head south at dusk! This resulted in changing the destination to a different Rome airport Next, off to Brindisi That's better, more to see A really early start for the trip to Santorini Not a lot here, so I'll press on with my tight schedule Crossing the Med en route to Egypt A quick hop over to Port Said Sand Sand and green stuff approaching Port Said, now for a couple of pint's of Toby's cat's piss The story so far First set complete, now for some more sand! Happy Landings people!
