Saturday 1 September, 8pm UK time,: Wieluń Memorial Flight

 

Base plan will be a Memorial Flight around Wieluń in Poland. This was the first area bombed (by Stukas) that kicked off WW2. When? Why on September 1 of course!

The planned route for FlightNight will be as follows:

 

We will start at the site of the original bombing campaign at Neider-Ellguth (EPKN), which was located in Germany (now Poland) with respect to pre-WW2 borders. We will then overfly the sites of the first aerial offensive of the war, at Radomsko, Dzialszyn and Sujelow, before taking a break at Łódź Władysław Reymont airport (EPLL).

After this, its a cross country flight, past fix GRU (Grudziadz) and onto flypast the docks area of Gdansk (the Westerplatte, site of the 1st ground offensive 3-5 mins. after the aerial attack) before circling around to conclude the flight at Gdynia-Kosakowo airport (EPOK).
