Still stuck in Courchevel while waiting for a weather window. It's open but certainly not bright and shiny. Speaking of not bright and shiny, ole Jan's Maule is showing its' hours. But here we go anyway.

I need to find someone with more powerful planes to borrow from!! These 9,000' passes are tough in that old Maule!!:o

 

Hope you enjoyed it anyway!

HA! And WHY it's not the best choice of aircraft? HUH! What's wrong with my amazing bird? TSK! You were able to make some great shots with it! :cool::cool::cool: And I want it back NOW! :mad:

 

Sure it's in Aosta. Oh and the tank's nearly empty. I had to drain some of your fuel off to clear that pass! ;)

 

And no, I'm way too busy to come help you and G'erard pump out that old seabird you forgot to put the plug in before you off on your hot date.

Looks like you were close to spiral ascents to get out of those canyons!

Great shots!

 

Good Eye!! Actually if it weren't for the spoiler, I'd not have made it! ;)

OOOPS!! SPIRALING ASCENTS! Yes that was tough! I first misread your comment. I thought you wrote descents! Both were a challenge in that rusty old plane!! And the spoiler (Speed Brake) did help me stop.

 

Patience got me over the top! Well, that and the fact I was flying on a scarily low fuel weight! I hated to drain off so much of Jan's fuel! :p
