ILA Berlin, Timezone UTC +2

Last weekend I was invited to join a discussion in the open forum at the ILA Berlin about the fascination of flight. Sure there were quite a lot of the old, perfectly restored planes from the Flying Bulls, and I was lucky to get on a flight with the Red Bull DC 6, with world hang gliding champion Guido Gehrmann as the co-pilot! It is always fun to meet him, and we had a fantastic scenic flight around Berlin for half an hour in perfect weather conditions, sunny with only a few cumulus clouds.
Please click on the photo to see the video from Berlin and fly with me, it is a youtube link! And thanks to all those idealists who spend hours on end to get and keep the planes in perfect flying shape - it really felt like stepping into a different time zone ;)
