............and flew in the Smokewings Bell & Ross YAK-52!!
I was fortunate to have a flight in this spectacular plane, whilst I was in Portugal, on holiday!
A friend and I drove from the Algarve to Lisbon, where we met my friend and colleague Jorge Prata (B&R Portugal) met the pilot, had lunch and so on!
A truly amazing experience for the good and the bad!!
And something to remember for a long time!
I had a video made from the cockpit, which I am editing, as there's over 20 mins!
...so watch this space as they say!!!
...the plane looked stunning, when we arrived at the hangar.
.....spot of fuel!
...the ever jolly Jorge!!
.....walking out to the plane, carrying my parachute!! ;(
....Jorge, getting a few things ready!
...help with the parachute
...explaining a few of the controls!

.....can't say what was going through my mind at this point!!!MANY THANKS to Jorge Fachadas of the Smokewings B&R Yak-52, and Jorge Prata, Bell & Ross, Portugal!
