2013 / 05 De Havilland Canada DHC.2 Beaver

There are not many occassions to fly with a DHC.2 Beaver in Switzerland. There are even less occassions where you can start from a lake – despite the fact that Switzerland has many lakes. I was lucky and got such occassions in the beginning of May. Starting from Lake Lucerne in the bay of Lucerne we flew along the lakes to Birrfeld. It was an amazing experience.
