Photo of the week October 24th, 2012

George Manu and Joerg Bohn are currently flying a four seat, propeller/piston engine powered, aircraft from Juist in Germany to Ghana, to mark the 50th anniversary of the first Air Cadets students from Ghana going on training in Juist in 1962. The flight is a great adventure and one that will give many tales to share in the coming months. Here is the image taken on Monday as they crossed the Pyrenees mountains that separate France from Spain. Flying over these mountains is no mean feat in a small plane, with hostile terrain and mountain peaks of over 11,000 feet! The adventuresome Ghana-German crew plan to land in Accra later this week. During the flight they hope to raise awareness of the challenges of access for medical education to those living in Rural Africa; Ghana in particular.
