Reflections by four friends on a flying trip from Finmere Aerodrome to southern Germany, Venice, Elba, Corsica and back through France.
The Peaks – well, they were higher than the valleys
The Valleys – lower of course
Water – a lot of it between Corsica and the French mainland
Weather – the good stuff followed us all the way . . . well almost
