Well yes I know my exact words on Saturday night were "Don't worry, I won't leave it till Thursday to share the details"

Anyway, ignoring the excuses here's the details for this weeks flight.

It turns out that someone has bought up every item of LEGO in the UK and supplies are running low. FGUK has been tasked with collecting a shipment of the lovable plastic bricks from their home in Billund, Denmark, and bringing it back to the UK.

Unfortunately those friendly people at Ann Summers have heard about it too and asked us to route via Amsterdam to pick up some 'special deliveries'

Routing will be:
EKBI > EDDH (140.7nm) > EHAM (253.6nm) > EGKK (197.5nm)

591.8nm total.

You can bring absolutely any aircraft you want, you can get a lot of LEGO bricks in a cockpit, but we'll be traveling at a about 300kts so make sure you can fly comfortably at that speed.

Look forward to seeing you all then!

I'll probably bring the Victor, because the thing mounted right above the windscreens is guaranteed to put anything Ann Summers is trying to export to crying shame...

Freudian slip there? I think we can guess whose cargo you'll be finding that bit of extra room for... ;)

Just in case this LEGO shortage is part of some nefarious hidden plan, will you accept a Mirage 2000 escort to make sure whoever is behind this does not try to stop you? They don't need to know that a novice will be piloting...

Yeah, that'll be fine, so long as you don't mind a fairly sedate pace. But be warned - there is unlikely to be a plan more nefarious than what StuartC is undoubtedly working on. For instance, correspondence recently came to light, sent to the North Pole, attempting to proliferate several of these:

My night out tonight is now partly back on, so I don't think I will be flying tonight.
