DIRECT FLIGHTS TO FRANCE. CHEAP FLIGHT TO ARRECIFE
Direct Flights To France
- Travelers often confuse direct flights with nonstop flights but there is a big difference. A direct flight means your plane will stop somewhere enroute to your final destination. These stops can last anywhere from 1/2 hour to 2 hours.
- (direct flight) a flight with one or more intermediate stops but no change of aircraft
- (Direct Flight) Where the plane goes directly from the departure city to the arrival city and the traveler does not need to change planes.
- "To France" is a single by musician Mike Oldfield, released in 1984. It is from the album Discovery and features Maggie Reilly on vocals.
Traffic awareness is everyone's concern, but so has been the cost of traffic systems, until now. PCAS XRX is the first ever portable, passive, stand-alone collision avoidance system for general aviation to offer direction from within the cockpit. PCAS, or Portable Collision Avoidance System, is Zaon's solution for providing high-quality, low cost traffic information to the general aviation pilot. XRX is the flagship model, providing a complete picture in a simple, easy-to-use device. PCAS represents Zaon's third generation of proven traffic detection technology. XRX is truly a "Plug and Go" device with its built-in antenna system and built-in display.
The one that gives direction
An industry first, XRX detects threat aircraft direction from within your cockpit using a cutting-edge, proprietary, self-contained antenna design. With direction, locating and identifying traffic is simple and easy, and traffic information is "three-dimensional", which means it can be displayed on third-party systems, such as moving map GPS devices. Read more about this below.
Don't let the tiny size fool you
XRX was designed to be placed on the glareshield. Yet despite its incredibly small and self-contained, XRX sacrifices none of the accuracy found in much more expensive, installed systems. The majority of the height is for the enclosed antenna array. In most cases, the unit sits below the visual line of the propeller, out of the pilot's line-of-sight and presents useful traffic information in plain sight in front of the pilot.
The PCAS XRX traffic system is a complete package and comes with everything you need to simply "Plug and Go", including:
* Dash-mount unit with integrated antenna
* Cigarette-lighter adaptor
* Headset-DirectTMAudio cable
* Velcro mounting dots
* Silicone "gripper" feet
* 75-page Owner's Manual
* Quick Guide
* Hard carrying case
Private Cecil Rahn (In Their Footsteps)
This is my Grandfather and he was part of the 'Carmichael's thousand".
In the history books a Captain Ambrose Carmichael MC of the 36 Battalion AIF raised 1000 recruits for the AIF in 1915.
My Grandfather was apparently underage when he tried to join the A.I.F so he went to the gym to bulk up and joined the Leichhardt Rifle Club this then enabled him to join the A.I.F but records say he was 18 years 4 months at time of enlistment.

There was fierce fighting in the trenches in Bullecourt, France 1917. While in the trench a german grenade landed between him and two of his Australian mates. He promptly picked up the grenade and threw it out of the trench saving his mates but in the process was wounded with shrapnel to his face and eyes as the grenade exploded mid flight.
Was reported to have been admitted to Bethnal Green Military Hospital, London 15 May 1917 suffering from a Gunshot wound to his right leg, arm, face and ankle. Later transferred to Harefield Australian Hospital (Ward 3).
He spent over 2 years in Hospital before returning home to Sydney on T.S.S Ulysses.
When I was 9 years of age when pop said to mum but directed to my brother and I "Never let the boys go to war"
These words he said are memories of my grandfather which have always stayed with me.
"lest we forget"
The Second Battle of Bullecourt, fought between 3 and 15 May 1917, was a continuation of the British 1917 spring offensive north and south of Arras. The aim of these operations was to support a major attack further south by the French under General Robert Nivelle. As the British had at the opening of the Somme in 1916, Nivelle sought a breakthrough of the German lines followed by swift defeat of the enemy on French soil. The French attacked on 15 April 1917 but failed. However, both British and French leaders agreed to continue operations, one of which was a combined British and Australian attack on the Hindenburg Line around Bullecourt where the previous attempt to capture and hold sections of the German line had failed so disastrously on 11 April 1917.
The Australian infantry of the Second Division advanced east of Bullecourt village at 3.45 am on 3 May 1917. The left flank, close to Bullecourt, was pinned in the wire but the right and centre, partly sheltered by a half-sunken road, seized and cleared the first two lines of enemy trench. These Australians now advanced towards their second objective, the railway embankment near Riencourt village. Other Australians, further right, were stopped entering the Hindenburg Line trenches by deadly machine-gun fire at the wire entanglements. British forces also failed in their attempt to take Bullecourt itself though some troops seized part of the Hindenburg Line west of the village.
The Australians who had managed to get into the Hindenburg Line now seemed to be in untenable positions which projected out on a narrow front and were being attacked on both flanks. But they held on. Part of the Australian objective was captured after furious grenade battles in which trenches changed hands several times. The men in more isolated positions, however, were forced back. The half-sunken road provided some shelter between the old front line and the captured trenches, allowing reinforcements and vitally needed supplies to come forward. At dusk on 3 May, the Second Australian Division held most of its first objective.
On 3 May, only the Canadians in the north and the Australians in the south made any progress. On 4 May the French troops were unfit for their planned offensive but the British pushed on.
Battles of the First and Second Bullecourt Private Cecil Rahn was Wounded on the 15th May 1917
The Australians extended their narrow foothold in the Hindenburg Line until it was like a mushroom on its stalk, with the head deep in enemy territory connected by a single long communication track. At dawn on 6 May, after 18 hours of bombardment, the Germans launched their sixth general counter-attack. The Germans had almost reached the central road when Corporal George Julian Howell made an astonishing run along the top of the trenches bombarding the enemy with hand grenades as he ran. This, and the stubborn support of other Australians, caused the Germans to move back farther than their starting point. Howell survived to receive the Victoria Cross in person from King George V.
Part of Bullecourt was seized by the British on 7 May and ten days later all the ruins were in their hands. On 15 May the Australians fought o

Issigeac, a small town in south-western France, has been taken over by the British. Direct flights btween near-by Bergerac and several british airports have put it closer to London or Manchester than it is to Paris. The church is distinctly Roman in style.
Issigeac, une petite ville du sud-ouest est devenue tres britannique. Des lignes directes entre l'aeroport de Bergerac et la Grande-Bretagne font qu'il est plus facile d'atteindre la region en venant de Londres ou de Manchester que de Paris
