No take-off clearance

Tower said no, wind too bad.
Poor TBM left watching from the very end of the runway into the deep valley it so much wanted to soar above…

No flight, solo, today.

Will fly there from chamonix tomorrow morning, wheather permitting!

French user might guess the airfield, somehow famous…


Probably Courchevel because I don’t know any other French mountain airport. Sad little plane.

Sad indeed! It is not courchevel, it is at much lower altitude…

Well, it is Mende in Lozere region (LFNB) This runway was famous because of a succesfull french comedy movie, la Grande Vadrouille. Final scene below!
