Nice flight from Nice ;-).

An airport I visit frequently for business trips to Valbonne. 

Climbed quickly out to cross the mountains, going on oxygen from 12000ft upwards to 18000ft.

After passing the Alps I went down and turned east towards Zurich. Only short hops remaining towards Andras Field, via Altenrhein of Friedrichshaven.

Almost my last flights.

First from Zurich to Altenrhein. At only 40nm thats just under 15 minutes of flight time in the Mustang. 

Now in familiar territory, as I tore up the skies in this neighborhood for so long hauling rubber dog shit out of Hong Kong Andras Field as a wee charter pilot.

After a short stop and some paperwork, on to Andras Field, climbing out over lake Constanz under a dieing sun.

What colors can do my mount. After all this time, I'm actually going to miss this wild wild machine.

Final at EAFS Andras Field, over the elongated hill, giving clear view of the main runway, the glider strip and the water field EAFW on the Forggensee and seaplane port and ramp to the big field in the Illasbergsee. Beyond the castle on the hill overlooking the air park where, among others, my home is located. As Meigs was in years long gone, so is Andras my gateway into the sim. With it's different runways and situated along the Alps, it never grows old.

Safely down and taxi to the end, then home, with the castle on the hill ever watchful.

2017-06-24 [125]: Valencia [LEVC] to Nice Cote d'Azur [LFMN], France

 

LEVC 12.SOPE4B.SOPET UM985 BCN UN870 MAXIR.[vectors].ILSZ04R LFMN

 

Not only the airport, but the harbor at Valencia was seeing some traffic.2017-6-24_8-57-26-252.thumb.jpg.88772292396b5b5faf899ca917e0e35c.jpg

 

More trouble with traffic.  It looks like some of the routes created by UT2 were not honoring the correct level separations.  And that airspace over the North-western Mediterranean has a spider-web of crossing paths -- Germany to and from the Balearics and Southern Spain to Southern France.  I had one encounter directly head-on (>900 knots closure rate).

 

Several layers of clouds over the Nice area.  One lower layer obscured the view of the airport, only after breaking through it became clear that the ILS signal was not well-aligned to the runway.2017-6-24_9-59-45-122.thumb.jpg.51f38b61cefffa8cd656110b858e6b19.jpg


I guess it is not surprising to find VIPs at Nice.  The 747 owned by [Saudi] Prince Al-Waleed bin Talal was parked.  And show in this image, an Airbus A319CJ, operated by Global Jet Luxembourg (rumored to be owned by a Russian company).2017-6-24_10-5-41-581.thumb.jpg.797044d1d46c118f6148e0e9e81abcff.jpg

 

With the summer heat coming on, it is about time to finish up this set of legs and wait for the last flight.

Hello guys, here is my flight from Nice to Zurich (actually, it's more than one leg). The overview (to Geneve only) is here:

594fce2fe01c7_LFMN_toLSGG_AB.thumb.jpg.b2979e53bb2062e49715399e3747e7d6.jpg

 

Leg #130.1    LFMN-LFMR (Saint Pons), PC6, 60 nm, 0:35 hrs, VFR

 

First towards VOR AZR by crossing the city of Nice...

2017-06-22_LFMN-LFMR_01_AB.thumb.jpg.bcaa91d66fff911b7bbe888a8c5d3d3d.jpg

... and then another left turn along the river La Tinée. The weather is not as nice as proposed.

2017-06-22_LFMN-LFMR_02_AB.thumb.jpg.56f45b1b8a2ab9a2dc70b38229e2984a.jpg

Approaching Sant Pons.

2017-06-22_LFMN-LFMR_03_AB.thumb.jpg.d006007ac026cbfc6e20924dc0a1f34b.jpg

 

Leg #130.2    LFMR-LFHU (Alpes d'Huez), PC6, 72 nm, 0:50 hrs, VFR: via Saint-Crépin, Lac de Sierre Poncon,

 

I left out Saint Crépin and continued to Alpes d'Huez, a first Altiport. Passing the Massif des Écrins having some peaks around 4000m elevation.

.2017-06-22_LFMR-LFHU_01_AB.thumb.jpg.ad1d4ba9a4a760c204b8147d3d45e957.jpg

The demanding final, however, by using the Porter's STAL ability not a real problem.

2017-06-22_LFMR-LFHU_02_AB.thumb.jpg.d78645eb4828576ca224e407008496da.jpg

 

Leg #130.3    LFHU-LFLJ (Courchevel), PC6, 45 nm, 0:26 hrs, VFR

 

After a short coffee-break, ready for using the jump (actually the Turbo Porter lifted off when reaching the marks)

2017-06-22_LFHU-LFLJ_01_AB.thumb.jpg.a14f175574bbf964d4d413bbc193740e.jpg 

The view became much clearer compared to the remaining early morning fog north of Nice. Here a nice view showing the Mont Blanc (4808m), Europe's highest peak west of the Caucasus.

2017-06-22_LFHU-LFLJ_01a_AB.thumb.jpg.f752203bc71ffb524d64f12c5e145357.jpg

Courchevel - the first time I saw it in Summer.

2017-06-22_LFHU-LFLJ_02_AB.thumb.jpg.de4b9f4dac82e8f5daf2fea45b12fa4a.jpg

Climbing uphill for a lunch break.

2017-06-22_LFHU-LFLJ_03_AB.thumb.jpg.bfaaa90cf22cd2e6236a514c0ef86bc3.jpg

 

Leg #130.4    LFLJ-LSGG (Geneva), PC6, 65 nm, 0:40 hrs, VFR RW23

 

The Porter began climbing even if I didn't use full power in order to enjoy at least a bit the downhill feeling...

2017-06-22_LFLJ-LSGG_01_AB.thumb.jpg.a73b7da7741e5efa5154e735095f19a2.jpg

Due to the wind direction I had to fly a downwind track along Geneva's airport. I'd been a bit late, but asked the tower for a short approach to no avail.

2017-06-22_LFLJ-LSGG_02_AB.thumb.jpg.0432b3ac95800e7936654909810ee7ac.jpg

I love the city and the promenade around the lake and its nice fountain.

 

(Scenery: Done by Guy Nemoz, Altiports http://www.vf-air.com/AltiportsAlps16v2.zip  - I still used the old version 3, available  there as well. LFMR is from the same source. However don't forget to install the library and read how to install, LSGG is done by Rene Scharlach and available at Avsim, lsgg_25a.zip ).

Hi Dale, you're absolutely right! Fortunately the weather is not that nice that I urgently want to sit on my terrace... ;)

 

Regarding your traffic experience I can't judge as I had been most of the time relatively low while flying eastbound along the coast. Where did you find the nice repaints of celebrity's rides?

 

However, for me remains reporting about the last flight towards Zurich.

 

Leg #130.5    LSGG-LSZH (Zürich), B738, 143 nm, 0:38, MOLU3N MOLUS DCT WIL WIL2Z

.

Due to the wind direction and necessary SID and STARs the short hop took quite a while. After taking of at RW23 we had to pass PASSERY VOR before u-turning left. Here we can see the mouth of river Rhône into lake de Genève and we are about to pass Montreux, well known for its famous Jazz Festival. 1971 the Band Deep Purple wanted to use the Casino complex for some recordings when it was burned by an idiot during the last concert of some other artists. However, this event inspired the band to the song "Smoke On The Water" and Richie Blackmore to his great guitar riff being the most recognizable part of it.

2017-06-23_LSGG-LSZH_01_AB.thumb.jpg.1d23dea440506bd135ab5beee85b7016.jpg

Here we are following the approach to RW34 before ATC directed us to RW16.

2017-06-23_LSGG-LSZH_02_AB.thumb.jpg.36a37c202a34908fb125d6bc86dad2bf.jpg

LSZH is crowded as always...

2017-06-23_LSGG-LSZH_03_AB.thumb.jpg.ca0d4e34ebf3d531be328db6af9eefd0.jpg

 

(I used a quite puristic scenery of Stefan Liebe, available at Avsim, lszh_v3.zip).

 

See you, likely I'll continue today.
