Great guy! I was intrigued by the Orcadian French accent too. Or vice versa.

A bit more about the aeroplane would have been useful - several come to mind but I'm not brave enough here to dare suggest my guess from that photo.

A nice video on his F'book page

Would seem to be a Druine Turbulent, which one would expect for a Frenchman.

My last video. Trying to reach North of Scotland from Paris with a Druine Turbulent. New attempt coming this month. For those who like big adventures with small planes, dedicated to the pilots who need the breeze of freedom to breathe. Jean-Marie Urlacher/ JEAN MARIE URLACHER
