from Bitterwasser

A committed team

In Bitterwasser you don't see it any other way: Reinhard Schramme and Rolf Bödeker always climb into the cockpit together, Reinhard in front, Rolf in the back. This season in Namibia it is an EB 28, at home in Rinteln it is the Arcus M.

End of a good Day in a Sandstorm

Lucky. The shower line approaching from the northwest stopped just in front of Bitterwasser. But landing had to be delayed. Shortly before sun set, a gust roller swept through the palm avenue and whipped the blown sand into the Kalahari in a flag that could be seen for miles.

It can still be topped

On Saturday, Wolfgang Joschko and Christa were happy after landing: “That was the best day of the season so far.” The two of them had taken the flight in peace after lunch and then after 4:32 hours the Arcus clocked 666 kilometers.
