Flaps up and a short burst down the runway had us up thought the copious clouds very swiftly.
The terrain changed numerous time and looked absolutely fantastic but very rugged.
The runway is Aykureyri is similar to SYD, where it goes out into the water. A low approach, soft touch on the runway, a short burst of reverse thrust and we had arrived.
“What a difference a day makes” , blue sky, what was that again, did I say blue sky? The Sun was shining upon us OK it really did feel like it was shining upon us and NO WIND.
Our bags were first off as we were first in the queue with Europcar and having been forewarned by Matt Wings about cost of fuel, we picked up our almost new, almost clean Mitsubishi Pajero with diesel. And heated seats.
Our car looked a bit like , for those who can remember him, Norman Gunston, with dab of tissue where he cut himself shaving. Our poor Pajero had similar white patches all over it from pre-existing rental damage. Cute!
