Flight 02) Farnborough – Paris

This flight is the official starting point for the 80 flights I will complete to navigate around the world. I was greeted with a lovely sunny morning which gave me clear blue sky over the Channel. As I crossed, my imagination ran wild with thoughts of the brave pilots which fought so bravely in the battle of Britain in those skies, and also of those pilots who flew the DC3s full of paratroopers right into enemy territory before the D-Day landings.

I was due to land at Orly which is not the main airport of Paris so I wondered off my flight plan just enough to see some of the sights of Paris. After all, I couldn’t reach Paris without making sure I saw the Eiffel Tower, Champs-Elysees, or the Arc de Triumph. I hadn’t realised that Paris was so large! I’d like to take a weekend break out there sometime, seeing as Paris is so easy to get to by train.
