    Back to work!

    It does seem a long time since my last post - however I have been dealing with a death in the family and all that entails so have been out of the air for quite a while.  As well as the bereavement, I have also had to take the vacation left over from last year - so consequently have done little since New Year!

    However, my simulator recurrent was at the end of February, so that bought me back up to speed, which was a good thing as my first tour back in the air sees me carrying out my company 'line check!'  This was eventful; after airlining into Amsterdam I switched on my phone to find lots of messages advising of a change of plan - one of our other aircraft had gone 'tech' and I was to carry out the recovery flight!  Still, a little bit of stress helps and I quickly prepped the aircraft whilst waiting for the rest of the crew to arrive.  We then carried out a flight to Florence, for a bumpy approach and night landing on a limiting runway! 

    After a good rest in a comfortable bed, we ferried to Barcelona.  Its beautiful weather here and it shows that spring is well established - hopefully no more snow for me!
