On final runway 13L at Budapest (LHBP).

Mainz (EDFZ) & Egelsbach (EDFE), Germany

taken 20NM NW of Firenze today… good to leave the stuff behind 🤓
Thanks Pisa and thanks Firenze, that was really cool and helpful.

I don’t do much just flying around anymore, but I just had the itch last night with the beautiful weather. Came across this hot air balloon (later there were quite a few), and decided to do a circle around it at close range just for fun, rocking my wings to wave at them. It was a nice shared aviation moment.

Later got to enjoy a nice sunset on arrival back to EHRD:

Not sure that was reciprocal 😉😅

Balloonists enjoy that actually. At least those over here.

Pics of the day…
Guess we’ve had enough water for the moment… looking West at the Untersee region of the Bodensee (Lake Constance) shows plenty…

and the Rheinfalls are being nicely fed.

They can’t run away anyways

I was once flying in between two balloons that were at about 200 meters apart from each other, somewhere over the Allgäu. Everyone was waiving and making photos. Did not put the bird in too high of a bank, it was a touring motor glider

Gosh that’s about 15 years ago.

@Dan – when do you become finally aware that your homebuilt is USELESS for international travel?

EDLE

@Dan I trust you used the whole runway to land?

Did you stop in Spain to “get handled”? or flew direct from France or Switzerland?
