From Lelystad to Reichelsheim

On Thursday afternoon, 10 March 2016, Sjouko and René departed Lelystad airport for Reichelsheim near Frankfurt. We were going to attend opening drinks for a new local venture, and fly back the next day. The flight went smooth. We passed the Ruhr district, and later on we passed the Lister dam. We landed at Reichelsheim runway 36.

From Reichelsheim to Budel

Satellite 11 Mar 2016

When we arrived at Reichelsheim airport on Friday morning, the METAR's showed fog in the northern half of Holland. When the fog was cleared in the south of Holland, we took-off to first fly to Budel. There we had lunch. Lelystad was still in low clouds, but from the satellite pictures it looked that perhaps it was going to clear. Hoping that it would clear while we were en-route, we departed from Budel to Lelystad. However, when we approached Lelystad it was still in low clouds, and we diverted to Hilversum.
