2013 / 01 Oman, travelling in the Sultanate

I had the happy chance to spend Christmas and New Year in the Sultanate of Oman. A distance of 5'000 kilometers was travelled in two cars during the three weeks of our stay. Mountains, sea and desert in abundance!

2013 / 01 Flugwerft Schleissheim

Flugwerft Schleissheim belongs to the Deutsches Museum and accommodates some very rare aircraft. If you are in Munich and have the time you should definitely pay a visit to this outstanding museum.

To be mentioned: – Udet U 12 FlamingoWACO YKS 6 – EADS / Boeing X-31 – Hispano Aviacion HA-300 – Hindustan Aeronautics HAL HF 24 Mk.I -Marut_

And what I liked in particular is the fact that the CASA 2.111B was restored as the Spanish aircraft it always was – and not as a (pretended) Heinkel He.111 H-16 (with Merlin engines).

2012 / 12 Christmas & New Year

A bit early for the good wishes, I know. But since I will be out on a vacation with some sand under the tires but no connection to the Internet, I thought that it is acceptable to send them to you already now.

I wish you some peaceful days and a very happy new year.
