After refueling and lunch we set off for the 322 miles to Donauwörth. I rather naively thought we should talk to Brussels and they would take us into their airspace and make life easy. I realised it was a daft thought, as if London would do such a thing. All this meant initially we were held below 1500 ft which leaves you a little short of gliding distance over some fairly built up areas. Apart from a clearance overhead Antwerp, the rest of the route was clear of controlled airspace, just a flight information service from Langen and Munich Radar. Arriving first for the meet, we were warmly greeted by the charming Thilo Langer.
