Altenburg Flugtage



From Teuge to Berling Tempelhof via Braunschweig

On Thursday, July 7, 2005, we started our trip to the eastern part of Germany. Veleda was driving with Charlotte. Laurence and Maurits were flying with Rene. The first leg was from Teuge to Braunschweig (see also YouTube).

In Braunschweig we filed our flight plan for the next leg, and we heard about the subway bombing in London that happened that morning. At the run-up checks we discovered a too large drop in RPM on the left magneto alone, that we got fixed first. The spark plugs were end of life, and we got them replaced (see also YouTube).

Trip to Prague

In the weekend, Charlotte, Laurence and Rene made a short trip to Prague (see also YouTube). Because the Czech republic was not a Schengen country, we informed the local police by fax about our planned trip. The police showed up especially for us at the airfield at the time of departure to fulfil formalities. After we arrived at Prague Ruzyne we took a taxi to the city, and we checked in at a hotel. The next day we flew back from Prague to Jena (see also YouTube). Upon returning from Prague in Jena, the police showed up again to check on us.
