DCA World Rally Leg 6: Nice (LFMN) to Zurich (LSZH)


Recommended Posts

An early start for a flight across the Alps proper - from the Mediterranean coast at Nice (a favourite GTA location), over the north of Italy and the Dolomites, past the Mont Blanc massif and the Matterhorn, a distant view of Lake Lucerne and then down the valleys to Zurich. Here we are, ready to roll:

After a climb out over the Med, we return to LFMN before turning north east for the TOPS VOR:

And that sharp little peak is the Matterhorn (yodel-odel-ay-ee-hee!)

Flight Time was 149 minutes and 207 gallons used. Now, where's the Apfelstrudel and Wiess Bier?!?

Cheers - Dai. :cool:
