Ah, my old training area, recognised it before I read the caption! In the days of Barry Costa.

Another rememberable training spot was an old concrete gun emplacement near the beach that was used for spot landing training on the roof of it. Probably end up in the slammer if tried it these days. Cheers mate.

Also did my float endorsement somewhere around there many moons ago.

Dear all,

We have just returned from a flight (via B3e) to Everest and back. Arranged by VF and his many contacts.

Like many of you, we looked at his amazing pics over the years and decided that we needed to come to Nepal and see all of this for ourselves.

WOW. A perfect day for my wife and I to go flying, the views (after leaving the smog-bound Kathmandu valley) are amazing. After landing in Lukla (the most dangerous airport in the world I think ?) for fuel, we headed for "orbit"...20,000 feet in a helicopter is very cool.

Everest and the other peaks are simply spectacular, as are the ice flows, glaciers, lakes and other sights.

We are blessed to have been able to have the experience and thank VF and his wife for all of their work.

If you want to do something amazing...contact VF and chat, he is a very nice chap, and no doubt will do his best to look after you.

WOW - squared !

Cheers,
Arrrj

Haaar fadecdegraded....in Ozz the LongRanger is colloquially know as the LongBox. Any inference to other more furry matters is purely coincidental
