Toulouse/Blagnac, Toulouse/Francazal, Muret/Lherm, Toulouse/Rangueil, Toulouse/Lasbordes, Toulouse/Balma, Hamburg/Helmut Schmidt – Sunday 14th January 2018 (Grant Robinson)

After breakfast, we hit the road for our first quick stop at the Air-Formation building which is just minutes away from the airport;

(5R-MHK), Aerospatiale SN.601 Corvette, Air-Formation (34)
(ZS-SLF), Airbus A340-211 (forward fuselage), Air-Formation (6)

 

 

Next up was the familiar circuit around Toulouse/Blagnac airport. Being a Sunday, there are no Airbus movements or workers on-site and so the traffic is non existent making it much easier to get around and stop where you want without upsetting the locals.
