On my third gliding day of the season, I teamed upon again with Jean Magne for a flight through the Southern Alps. Although the flight as such was nice (we followed a more western path), I had serious pain in my back (kidneys) all the flight long. Not very pleasant to say the least..especially if a flight takes many hours and I can’t move.
The flying as such was also way more difficult. We had a VERY hard time getting out the local area at Fayence. The Mount Lachens and even the barre de Seranon seemed invincible. Thanks to Jean’s life spanning experience, we succeeded anyway to get into the mountains, but we we have been struggling all the time.
Painfull but very instructive day 🙂
