Introduction

In the week of February 19/26, 2011, Veleda, Charlotte, Maurits and Rene visited Athens. The intention was to make a flying trip from Athens to northern Greece. Kerkira, Ioannina, Kastoria, Kozani and Skiathos had been put on the list of places to visit. On Sunday morning, an unofficial, but good VFR map, compiled by www.greekhelicopters.gr, was picked-up at Tatoi. Because the weather was not good to fly to the north or east, we made a flying trip to Milos in the south, and Megara west of Athens. Unfortunately, the weather was also not good the remainder of the week to fly up north, and the flying trip was transformed into a museum trip.
