In hangar H-18 we met Pierre Gillard who made some photo’s of Pilatypus and placed them on his aviation blog:

A flight of only 02:54 but with much better visibility than on our flight in the other direction nearly a month ago. Then the flight took us 03:42 and we had no visibility at all.

We found a new place to have dinner
