On Friday 4 November, the 10 Dutch participants of the 4Aviation ‘Florida-tour’ gathered at Schiphol airport. A British Airways Boeing 737 took care of the first part of the flight, to Gatwick. At Gatwick, after meeting the eleventh participant (from the UK), we boarded a BA Boeing 777 and continued our journey towards Orlando. After arriving there, the two rental cars were collected and packed in a professional way. From Orlando we headed for our first hotel in Tampa. After the evening meal all on the group opted for their beds after a relatively long day.
