Pffft.... made it safely in to Marseille, hurah!
It was certainly a challenging flight. At 12.000 ft over the french Alps I had to switch fuel tanks, and of course my engine died when dong so (need to find out what I am doing wrong there!). As my subborn lady was gliding, and me preveventing a stall, I finally got the engones to start again. I almost wet my pants.
THen coming in to Marseille there was a severe thunderstorm, kicking me all over the place, making for an interesting landing.
But at the end I managed to land safely, without causing any damages. Not too bad for a rookie.
So, Not I need to go take a bath, and try to get the adrenaline to come down.
This event is definitely making me learn all about NDB flying and how to handle this graceful lady.
