Flying trip to Germany / Switzerland / France

We flew to Germany, Switzerland and France during the Pentecost weekend in the end of May 2012. We departed Charleroi (EBCI) with a group of 7 pilots and student-pilots on Saturday 26 May, made a stop in Saarbrücken (EDDR) and stayed for the night in Friedrichshafen (EDNY), by the shores of the Bodensee. We took off again the next day, destination Annecy in France (LFLP), circumnavigating the Alps due to thunderstorm activity. We spent our second night there and the next morning, we were lucky enough to be able to fly across the Alps and see the Mont Blanc massif!

Here are a few pictures and videos of this unforgettable 3-day flying tour!
