    No photographs but a 45 minute hop from Brussels to Strasbourg today in an Embraer 145 a Brussels Air Flight run by BMI.


    Luckily I didn't have to fix it on arrival, it would probably never go anywhere again. :)

    The flight is about 2:45 from Gatwick. It's a nice little city but in December I imagine it will be quite chilly, it dropped below freezing at night while I was there. Check out the aviation museum next to the airport terminal if you have time.

    Nope......I'm grounded, having to commute in and out of London using Southern "SUCK" railways. They are for ever striking and just plain inefficient!


    I'll get my butt fired if I didn't want to do my job because I don't like the way they have changed it or what ever excuse they are using. The rail franchise business is a joke and the unions are laughing their heads off as well.


    There, that is my rant for the day! 9_9

    The company I work for builds the nacelles for those, I share an office with them when I'm not on the road.

    I've driven on the right a few times, all seems ok until I get to a junction. Once, returning to the UK, back onto the left side, I went around a roundabout the wrong way, luckily I was still at the airport and no one else was there at that time of the morning.

    CRJ900 from Warsaw to Copenhagen, and in business class no less...which means you get a warm bread roll with your breakfast. Next stop Iceland. WP_20161205_07_33_50_Pro.jpg

    The worst I find is having spent around 30 years driving in the UK, it feels very odd returning and driving on familiar roads with our Belgian car.
