Flying Jugendfest Windisch 2004

Today I was invited to fly on the Jugendfest of Windisch

This is a event in the roman theatre where students from all schools do performances

The Kindergarden was playing they fly over the oval and are waiting for a landing strip to be built. I was flying over the crow before they came in.

I guess there were about 1000 people looking - I was rather nervous on that flight, as the wind was rather stiff sometimes with some bad gusts.

Had planned to circle really low overhead, but I had to keep 10m above ground to be prepared for sudden wind.

The flight went well, and when the children 'flew' in the oval I left so I wont disctract the spectators.

I went up again a bit later with the camera onboard to take some pics.

The wind was even worse, but both on takeoff and landing I was lucky and the wind eased up

There were lots of cars parked on the field, so I had to do a precision landing...
