    Fine flight!
    It was still barely the end of the Algerian War at that time in France, and I was not that tall

    When they are in need of relaxation and some quality time, other people go for things like making themselves comfortable in their armchairs and watching a movie or some other TV show, enjoying a snack with some background music...paint, and stuff like that. As for me, I just sit back and delight my eyes with flight reports and screenshots such as this one! Terrific presentation Larry, I can never get enough of these.
