Fantastic mountain flying in the French Alps. About to touch and go on the altisurface of Vaugelaz. As you might guess, you have to trace your RWY yourself in fresh snow. Special thanks to my friend Jeff and to François for making this photo possible.

We can see the Mont Blanc on the back left(highest mountain in Europe). Pretty cool picture!

These aircrafts are very reliable for mountain flying. The "Mousquetaire" is specialized in this activity.
The Megeve frequency is 118.500, but, in flight, the "Mountain" frequency for A/C to A/C communication is 130.000

Crikey! Great shot, but a pretty scary one as well. The runway reminds me somehow of Lukla on Mt. Everest.
