Because of a strong head wind and the lightness of an autogyro Norman had to land at right angles to the runway. It seems that the air traffic control staff were speechless at the arrival of Norman’s little yellow machine. As he arrived in a French pilot was so impressed he exclaimed “machine formidable!”

Norman’s French progress - Formidable machines and chicken sandwiches
Norman had an interesting arrival in France at Le Touquet. The inspiration for his expedition is having an impact on local people. They have sought him out offering help and hospitality. Of particular note was Irish Woman and French resident who helped in many ways. You can see her son and her posing below with Gyrox autogyro at Chartres airport.
