1000 km Goal from the Dutch-Belgium Border to the French-Spanish Border!

A report from young Belgium pilot Tijl Schmelzer, who managed after his 1,000 km free distance flight to write, within 48 hours [ mind you he had to drive with mum in the car back to Belgium, trailer behind!!! after a short but good sleep in a hotel], a prestigious article with pictures and statistics that reads as an adventure book of high quality. Inspired by the record flight from Lübeck [ N of Hamburg in Germany] to Bayonne/Biarritz [French Spanish border] by Hans Werner Grosse 40 years ago on April 25th and after very good preparations, Tijl started early Monday morning for this not too easy flight.
