Title: Wojciech MIRSKI back after his Round the World Flight

Our aviator friend Claude REYMOND had just arrived back from Montréal two days ago, and came along with us in Honey Mooney to receive Wojciech MIRSKI arriving back in Les Eplatures airport from his round the world flight in his Comanche 260 HB-OTF.
We heard Wojciech on the Geneva information frequency on the way, and had a quick chat on the radio. We landed just 10 minutes before him, so we just had time to get the chocks installed and get the cameras ready. He got permission from the tower to do a high speed low pass over the runway (with the gear up) followed by a circuit and a beautiful, perfect landing.

There was a large crowd of family and friends assembled on the apron to receive him. Wojciech got his first welcome kiss from their dog, the second from his wife Eliana, and the third from his daughter Caroline.

After the reception at the airport, we were invited for further festivities and aviator talk at the MIRSKI home in La Chaux de Fonds. A beautiful day to finish a magnificent flight. Congratulations Wojciech and welcome in the Earthrounders club!
