There have been a few amendments to the programme of events which was published earlier. Here are the main points.

Thursday 2nd May 2019 - the various guest seaplanes will be arriving in Puerto Pollensa from 17.30 hours. The owners/pilots will then have a private official reception in the Hotel Don Pedro in Cala San Vicente with the civil and military dignitaries.

Friday 3rd May 2019, from 10am the visiting seaplanes will be allowed to fly and carry out various manoeuvres in the Bay and surrounding area (according to an agreed flight plan).

Saturday 4th May 2019, visits to the military base will be allowed from 10.00 hours to 13.00 hours. (Do remember to take your passports if this is like previous visits)

Sunday 5th May 2019, visiting sea planes are due to leave the base from 10.00 hours onwards.

Just back from a very interesting trip to the Military base, congratulations are due to Colonel Salguero and his team for organising a very friendly visit.

We have friends currently holidaying the Port. They too enjoyed the friendly hospitality during their visit to the Military Base.

Brownie points all round
