If we gave everybody in the World free software today, but we failed to teach them about the four freedoms, five years from now, would they still have it? Probably not, because if they don’t recognise their freedoms, they’ll let their freedoms fall

No, it is Stord in Norvay, few miles SW from Bergen. ICAO code ENSO. Unfortunately, this airport is too small for serious event. It looks like a carrier with 1500 meters long deck. If You will make mistake in approach, landing and roll out, You will need swimming dress :mrgreen: Strong headwind is very good friend.
