New Challenge

The aircraft was presented on the Luxembourg Airport Open Days. On this occasion the aircraft was also 'christianized' and now has the tourismus minister and the transport minister as godmother and godfather.

It will be presented for the 100th birthday of the Fédération Aéronautique Luxembourgeoise (FAL) on november 21st 2009 in Esch, Luxembourg.

Thereafter it will be presented in a static display show. The place is still to be determined.

The organization for 2010 is also well on the way.

And YES, we will cross the Channel next year. The foreseen date is the 21st of may. This day we will celebrate the centenary of the second ever crossing of the Channel. The second crossing was made by J. de Lesseps on a Bleriot XI. The plan will be to cross the Channel together with the dutch team, who were also not allowed to fly in july 2009.

The next major event being the replication of the first crossing of the Alps by G. Chavez on september 23rd 2009.
