Trip Reports Forum | Carry on Cannes
Decided to pop into Vatry, its a 'new' airport the French built on an old air base, pretty central in Europe I think they thought THE T.N.Ts & U.P.S's would use it but they didn't !
HB AFK, F-GCBG / L/ M
Down by Dijon this passed me.....
He was doing about 85 (mph) it took a wile to catch him
Got to Cannes about 8 p.m. because of the carnage on the autoroute.
About 36 I hadn't seen.
Popped in again next morning, 7, OE-GVX,LX-FGL,G-MOLO,F-GAMP,N700EL,F-GMMN &HB YIU.
Went off and did my delivery and was about to start back (we were supposed to go to the in-laws for the weekend) When the phone went, can I stay down till Monday & collect the shoes I had taken down 2 weeks before ! YES.
With 2 and a half days to waste I went off to Fayence a glider field about 30 miles from Cannes ( I hadn't been there fo about 30 years ! 22 amongst which were D-MEMY, HB-EUO I-6469, the rest were French gliders or motor gliders.
Except for the 2 helicopters.
Back to Cannes as it got quiet at teatime !. 4 new TF-NPA,VP-CLL,VP-BNS & G-HARK
Next day 23rd about another 45 new including
OO-AMP,P4-LGB,YU-BZZ,SP-CFM,SP-KGA,TF-RVA,P4-ALA & N1YA.
Next day 24th about 35 new,
Lot of Polish that day, SP-KPL,SP-AVA,SP-ZSZ,SP-CFM & SP-KGA still in too.
10 minute visit next morning netted D-AKAT and CS-DMV, then off to Jimmy Choo, loaded up and away by 10.00 slipped across into Italy, with the intention of a quick visit to Como seaplane base, then realised I had about £250,000
of shoes on board so couldn't come back through Switzerland (its not E.E.C.) so diverted up to Aosta & through the Mont Blanc tunnel 44 Euros for 11 kms, robbery.
Descending Mont Blanc in France.
Then came straight home (didn't want to find & hotel & leave all those shoes unattended )got home about 6 on Tuesday morning.
