Nice pictures, Darryl, along with the "sporty" little Piper plane...

BTW, isn't "Courchevel" among the most dangerous airports in the world to land on? Have you tried landing on it?

I went to Annecy in 1989, but it was raining there and clouded over, I was so bummed.  I flew from SFO to JFK, then on to Zurich, then on to Geneva, I had to get a Visa because France was upset with the US over something or another back then, but the French consulate people in Frisco were gracious and gave me wonderful brochures of where I wanted to go.  In general, the French have always been so kind and cute with me, maybe because I recognized Avignon as the temporary seat of the Papacy, which is not well known, I loved its cobbled streets and walking in the footsteps of Charlemagne himself, who helped bring Europe out of the Dark Ages. 

I found out late in my life that I am a distant relative of Charlemagne, heir to the throne of Gondor, lol....  I would not want the job, I prefer serfdom and protection of the castle, in my case the US government.  But the French and the US have a deep rooted friendship, they helped us win the Revolutionary War with the help of Ben Franklin, a national treasure who wanted the turkey to be our country's bird vs. the bald Eagle.  And he had such love of women, his sayings about women I will not repeat here, they were risque at the time.  Good ol' Ben was really the heavenly father of the United States.....  That's why I love flying kites, except in thunderstorms, lol....

Great memories of France, my last visit, 2017!

The service ceiling on the LSA/Piper Sport is 20,000 ft, I was only at 10,000-12,000 (max.) for this pictorial.
