Sidestreet and Stained Glass
Tuesday, July 21, 2009
The reason why I'm spending 5 weeks in southern France is to attend a helicopter training course at the very large Eurocopter factory to learn the aircraft that I maintain in Nigeria.
This is just a small portion of the ramp and hanger space here. The aircraft in front is a military Tiger and some new unpainted heavy lift Pumas behind.

I think the pilot said this was Mount Blanc when we flew over the Alps.
I left my house in Nigeria at 8:30 am on Saturday and traveled 25 hours to get to France at 10:30 am Sunday morning. Warri-Lagos-Frankfurt (Germany)-Marseille. My hotel room wasn't ready so I had to sit in the lobby till 1pm. I took a 3 hour nap before venturing out to get a sandwich. The hotel room is a studio with a miniture kitchen in a closet. No Air Cond.
