Thread: Brussels (EBBR), Belgium-Dijon (LFSD), France on A Vacation Flight!

    Default Brussels (EBBR), Belgium-Dijon (LFSD), France on A Vacation Flight!

    Hi!

    With June, summer vacations flights turn in demand!
    That morning, we flew from Brussel, Belgium (EBBR) to Dijon, France (LFSD) on a flight mostly reserved by a vacation agency. We started from Belgium, with people either going to Dijon only or, with that agency, to Dubrovnik, Croatia. And we made a stop in Dijon, Burgundy, France -- my home town, no one kidding -- to embarked more Dijoneers to that destination too
    Hope you enjoy! Cheers

    By chance, some ground view appeared taken from our freeware we recently updated and released, about terrains in the area of Dijon (that one is Til Chatel, LFET; not much rendered as buildings missing )

    And again, one of our terrains, Nuits-St-Georges, LFGZ (that time the terrain's definition asked too much time to draw)

    Dijon, LFSD was once a French AFB as some remains hint to that

    Great shots G'erard!! I especially enjoyed the mention of Dubrovnik. Whether earned or not in the US Dubrovnik, which I've never visited, is considered the best place in the Med to go if you want to be near the sea but don't want to have to put up with the sun. The same can be said of Great Britain, except it's on Atlantic, not the Med.

    Having said that, I must admit I'll be spending about a month in Great Britain again this year. Don't ask why! It's not something I can justify. It's just who I am.

    Thanks for the answer, Rupert. I never been neither in that area. I just crossed northern Croatia then the rest of Jugoslavia, the times I was heading to Greece. From what I'd seen in Zagreb, Croatian look like nice people. Didn't know about the weather on the coast!
    Cheers!

    Oh no! That's just the occurrence which made: 1) terrains around Dijon were long overdue 2) and I just took to profit I was on that sprea of modifying airports I fly with the Boeing 737-200 =
    And I just started to rest since Saturday Flying and posting here is no business, it's the pleasure to fly, and to check with gentle airmen of varied nationalities

    I won't compromise a good French wine with unreliable courriers, like that was the case last time

    Cheers!

    Yes, I do understand well. But I don't see I would waste a good French wine one more time! And have you checked the recent post by a certain Rupert, from the U.S.?!! LOL I thought that that Chablis had been lost or diverted by a Frisian. In fact no, it seems?!!
