2015 / 01 New Book: Almasy's Ford A

We thought that it would be time to prepare a small pictorial book about the replica of Almasy's Ford A in the Sahara desert. Not much text and for sure not a guideline on how to restore an 1930 Ford A open cab pickup truck but actually a lot of photographs of the vehicle in the desert…

2014 / 11 Soe more flying...

Thanks to the very good weather in the recent weeks I had the chance to enjoy two flights in vintage aircraft to the Alps. The first one was a flight in a very rare Max Holste 1521 Broussard, serial number 6 and the oldest of this type in airworthy condition. The second one in a 1957 Piper Super Cub which was equipped with ski… my first “Glacier Flight”. A gret and thrilling experience!

2014 / 11 A short visit to Libya

Not many foreign vistors are found to be in the Country these days. I had the chance to go there for a few days in November – the airport used was the one of Misurata. Not that I wanted to go there but it is connceted with daily flights to Istanbul. Some visual impressions:

2014 / 10 Dedication of the LRDG Memorial at Doun, Scotland

The long deserved LRDG memorial has been dedicated at the location of the Stirling memorial in Doun, Scotland. Four LRDG veterans were present at this occassion and Paul Lincoln brought a replica of an LRDG-Jeep to create some sort of “desert atmosphere”. A very special occassion and I am very happy that I had the chance to attend it.

And here are some photos:
