25 Years of Flying: Ukraine

25 Years of Flying: Ukraine


Jacques De Jonghe

Look at the flag of Ukraine, blue sky and yellow wheat!

A Dutch friend, has a huge farm in the middle of Ukraine. He was not really prepared for us to fly in and indicated to us a wheat field as runway. Well, he has a Maule and the clearance on his plane is a bit bigger :) But that was just ok for my mono! So no worries, no forced landing. Just nice landing in the field. Then decided to stay in Ukraine.“

More than ten years have gone by since Jacques arrived in the Ukraine and started a new life there. 

The Europa Flyer featured a Europa Club flying visit to the Ukraine five years ago.
