Biscarosse splash-in and airshow 19-22/05/2016. http://www.hydravions-biscarrosse.com/#!meeting/cbii

There seems to be a new concept as there will only be flying displays on sunday this time and entrance is free while I paid €50,00 for a 4-day ticket in 2012. Looking forward in seeing their progress on the Albatros restoration, their Seabee and hopefully much more.
Best regards,

For what it's worth, in the photo album, that is me in the bow hatch of the Catalina.

26 seaplanes/floatplanes and microlights expected > http://media.wix.com/ugd/2f6c1e_01bb6ce ... 8de56c.pdf

Beaver N5CC should actually be LN-NCC.

Plus a demo with a Canadair CL-415 of the Sécurité Civile on the sunday airshow.

Hoping for some good weather.

So it would appear that Herr Dornier hasn't gotten the Do 26ATT repaired yet, interesting.

Looking forward to it. We are flying G-PBYA down on Wednesday via Deauville and returning to Duxford a week today.
