North of Heilbronn looking to the South (Stuttgart) on my way back from Schwäbisch Hall (EDTY) to Speyer (EDRY).
It is still possible to use nuclear power plants for navigation purposes in Germany.

D-EUPC has moved into her new home in hangar 4 at EDRY (Speyer).

It was a journey much longer than anticipated in the beginning, but that is probably the first thing to learn about planes and flying... anyway, I'm very happy now!

Most of the times we don't know our users of Eclipse RAP, sometimes they write bug reports or postings on our newsgroup, sometimes they talk to us directly on conferences such as #EclipseCon  next week.
And sometimes they get in touch with us and write a nice summary about their experience and plans with the Eclipse Remote Application Platform like the people from BOSCH.

The second highlight today: Our #Eclipse   #RAP  3.0 release.
RAP 3.0 has shipped together with Eclipse Mars. With API clean-up and dropped support for deprecated browsers, it is now slimmer and faster than ever before. Get it from RAP downloads page or with the new Eclipse package for RCP and RAP developers. Enjoy!

#Toulouse - Music everywhere in town.

I think I've been listening to more than 50 bands on small and big stages. And they are still celebrating in the streets. That's a very nice feeling of summer!

Had a great day with Lisa today...

Lisa Alpha, N26292, is one of the Grumman AA5A's in Frankfurt Egelsbach (EDFE), and after my checkout today it's very likely that I will fly them soon again.

This was my final flight (for now) in California and definitively one of the highlights this year. I was invited for a Bay Tour on board of a Meyers 200D, one of the fastest single engine piston planes in this class ever.

We started our Bay Tour from Palo Alto (KPAO), followed the Highway 101 with the class bravo airport KSFO to our right. Then I high speed descent to downtown San Francisco with great views of the Bay Bridge, the skyscrapers of the Financial District, Alcatraz Island, and of course a midspan overflight over the great Golden Gate Bridge. Just amazing. Thank you, Mark, I'll keep that flight in my memory!

(Top speed during that flight... 193 kts (357.7 km/h) GS. I've never been flying faster myself.)

Today's destination: Lake Tahoe KTVL in 6269ft with a Cessna Turbo 182T #N1325D.

Lake Tahoe was on my wish-list of destinations for many years, and the weather conditions today couldn't have been better. I flew with +Mark Erwin and +Florian Waibel from #KPAO to #KTVL in a turbo 182 which is really a nice plane, and much easier to fly than I thought before. Really great great experience! Flying through the mountains which were still covered with some snow, beautiful. The lake: blue, deep, and probably very cold. And finally another just-for-fun landing at the Blue Canyon (#KBLU) airport in the mountains... extremely cool.
