Flew 1.7 hours around northwest Ohio yesterday with my dad while I was home for break.... Flew down the Maumee River at about 500 agl for 50 miles or so (scared the crap out of a few geese, who also scared the crap out of me), then cut up to Williams County Airport for a touch and go with a 5 knot surprise tailwind, buzzed the Scout reservation, then took it up to 3500 for the cruise back to base until the clouds forced us down to 2500. Fun way to spend a nice Saturday in March.

Holiday pictures are the best, so I post two.

On the first one you see me and a German fellow. Place of this picture is the war museum in Narvik. My German "buddy" actually is Norwegian resident since 1943 but lost his job as 38cm grenade a while ago. Now works in a museum.

And another one, made during the same holiday.
That is me standing on the top of "The Elch", a very nice hill somewhere in the Harstad area (coordinates on request). Please don't mind my paramilitary appearance, this was a hiking tour. I don't use to look like that.
The picture was actually taken at 23:30h in the night.
Sweet midnight sun.

Never fired a shot in anger I think.
Unfortunately it is hard to visit.
Question: was it used post-war by the Norwegians?

Yes, it is located at the Trondenes Fort near Harstad. Spent some of my navy service there, manning a radio station inside a bunker. Used to pass them every day going to and from "work"

They never fired a shot in anger, but had several test firing both under German and Norwegian "management". They were enrolled in our coastal defenses, decomissioned in 1961 (some say 1964). Originally ordered for two new Kriegsmarine battleships, the "Friedrich der Große" and "Großdeutschland". Twelve were built, 8 sent to northern Norway, one was lost enroute. More about them here.

Cheers,

I wish to discontinue talking about me. It's in my opinion that we should move on to another topic...I hope you all agree

Some more wrinkles from the Med sun, but apart from that more or less the same with my inseperable wool hat.
Sincere condolences to all Norwegians! I guess you will need some aquevit to get over this.

Only Monday I will be able to put up a pic of myself because the one I have in mind is stored in my computer at the office.
So its Tuesday now...and no picture of Carlos G....where oh where are you my friend?
I am hoping he will repost the one of himself with wife and daughter sitting under a big umbrella on a patio in Mozambique,
Error, that was a pic of my wife, okay, sitting beneath our friend - the flight captain of the A340 who invited us for a week in Mozambique - and his daughter. But nevertheless nice of you to remember the pic. That was a fantastic journey, believe me...
