Horst Gläsker - Art Aero
Wind turbines can be a concern for aviation. They trend to proliferate everywhere and to be sometimes implemented in runways paths. This may be a danger for planes. Uniformity of colour white or grey, is also part of their characteristics.
Fortunately Horst Gläsker proposes a nice solution to render these necessary but not always sympathetic electricity generators, in something nicer to look at, by transforming them in a colourful symphony of mast and propellers.
Alderney (Aurigny) Island is one of the Channel Islands, being part of the UK crown dependencies. Alderney is close (7 miles) to the French Cotentin Coast in which are located the beaches of the 1944 amphibious warfare of the allied forces.
Alderney has a nice, truly aviation friendly small airport (EGHA) which, quite probably occupies 2/10th of the surface or at least 2/10th of the length of the island! ! Pilot dream !!? You may live at a walking distance from the airport and maybe your plane. map
Alderney was visited one first time, very shortly, during a refuelling stop, when en route for Saint Mary (Scilly islands); with the promise to come back for a longer term visit.
Helped by a splendid, unusual, end of September mild and sunny weather, this second visit was relaxing with plenty of interesting people to meet, and many more to see and to do, than one may expect versus the size of the island.
Movie about Spitfire and JU 52
Spitfires, and a junker JU52 who wants maybe to be taken for a Ford Trimotor; male pilots almost no macho, a matchless 5 stars hotel buttler played by John Malkovitch; and a sexy female pilot slightly provocative.
Which pilot has never dreamed about flying a spitfire, trying to fight the tights, that a glamorous young lady pilot, carelessly throw from the window of her plane?
Humor, mythic planes, fluidity of the pictures and controls, adventure and action movie music.
No it is not a great history, but an advertisement to launch the Spitfire watches from IWC.
La Fiancée du Pilote
La Fiancée du pilote, is, a very probably true story!.....; which will remind to most of our ladies or to our partners......, their first encounter with a pilot... and then their first flight ......
Of course when she will wish, she will relate the next steps. Enjoy !
