USA III 2014
In November 2014 we had our third USA tour of 2014. This time five southern states were visited; Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama and Florida. Main goals were some interesting base visits and the Blue Angels Homecoming Airshow at NAS Pensacola.
On Thursday 30 October 2014, an international group of people got together at Schiphol airport for a trip through five southern states of the US; Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama and Florida. Via a stopover at Heathrow, where the French participant joined the group, a course was plotted to Houston George Bush Intercontinental Airport. After a pleasant flight with a British Airways Boeing 747-400 we arrived around 16:00 local time in a sunlit Texas. The two cars were picked up at the airport and the luggage was loaded. The hotel near Houston was only a short distance away and was easy to find. Here we would stay three days. After a dinner at Denny’s we went to bed for a well-deserved rest.
