— TRANS ATLANTIC FLYING EXPEDITION 2017 —

Since Tuesday I have been on a rather unusual trip across the arctic. Flying a small group of vintage aeroplanes from the northern coast of Scotland, to Iceland then Greenland then over the Atlantic to the north of Canada, eventually ending our trip in Montreal after 10 days.

Day 6: A fantastic view of the edge of Greenland’s Ice cap seen during the Kulusuk to Nuuk leg of the expedition.

 

Day 5: South East Greenland Beauty.

 

Day 4: An amazing day!… Phil and Allie Dunnington’s 65 year old Beech 18 flown by John Herbert flies over Greenland during the fourth leg of our expedition from Kulusuk to Narsarsuaq.

 

Day 3: South East Greenland may well be one of the most magnificent places I’ve ever been to… During the third leg of our expedition from Isafjordur (Iceland) to Kulusuk (Greenland) our first sight of the South East coast of Greenland was this astonishing vista.

 

Day 2: Our flight across Iceland from Egilsstadir to Isafjordur was EPIC!
Seen here Mark Albery and Rogier Westerhuis’s RV8 flying over Iceland’s incredible landscape.

 

Day 1: A spectacular sight presented itself during the first leg of the expedition from Wick (Scotland) to Egilsstadir (Iceland). Early morning cloud can be seen rising from ‘Lítla Dímun’ in the Faroe Islands. It is the smallest of the main 18 islands, being less than 100 hectares in area, and is also the only uninhabited one.
