Dolphins and slow sailors – Normans flight out into the Mediterranean

Monday Norman landed in the French island of Corisca near Italy and famous as a training base for the French Foreign Legion.  He was diverted there because Marina di Campo airport on the Italian island of Elba was closed due to maintenance.

Previously he had left Carcasonne on the mainland where the flying club were having a celebration lunch which Norman was invited to join - photo above.

His 150 mile / 240 kilometers was interrupted only twice by the majestic sigh of a school of dolphins and one yacht.  Norman, an avid sailor, was reflecting on the yachts journey an the 3 days ahead of them to reach land while he would reach the same in hours.
