Video footage from past year

Here is a video assembling different flights over past season. Those shots were flown starting either from my “home airfield” of Moissac (LFCX) or from different flying trip : Jaca (LECI), Bailleau (LFFL) & Luchon (LFCB).

Mountain flying + Family

We spent, as a family, a day in Luchon airfield (LFDH), that stands so to speak in the middle of Pyrénées mountains, on french side.

The weather was nice for the kids to play outside, and grass runaway was very welcoming…

For dad, autumn thermal where just right to discover this new area. I was also happy to fly over the slopes I had quite much flown with models.

A week in Pyrénées mountains

Again this year a very nice week flying from Santa Cilia de Jaca (Aragon)

Not so far away from the airfield, in France, Pic du midi d’Ossau is a nice sightseeing area.

Everyday so to speak, we were gliding along Canon de Ordessa, south of the famous brèche de Roland.

This area being a nature sanctuary, it was not to be flown directly over. Anyway prey bird such as Vultues, Percnoptère & Gypaètes were flying also outside of the parks ;-)

Sometime cloud where growing a bit too much…

… so that we went sight seing in Navarre.

Several time we flew close to each other for the sake of taking nice photo.

In the “wavelet” the view was all the most stunning.

In return I was taken some nice shots too.

Very nice week, and nice collection of images to be remember during cold winters !
