Flight test completed and now we wait…

Dhaka Airport

For the test flight we flew a 27 mile circuit out of Dhaka and back again. The following are some sights from the flight.

We had a beautiful clear day to fly and because it was Saturday, the normally very busy airport – was not so busy and we were able to take off and depart without the normal delay, and test fly both Caravans.

Sunset near the train station – close to where we are staying – we went for a fantastic walk at the end of the day.
City of Rickshaws
The remarkable comings and goings in a nearby market
A really great market with winding streets, shops and loads of rickshaws!

We are looking forward to having a bit of time to explore more while we wait on the export C of A before we can depart. As so often with flying it seems the commonly used slogan – hurry up and wait – is universal!
