LOG/Trip report for Fujairah, Sharjah and Kuwait
Hello once again all;
Seeing as the aircraft was left parked in Fujairah instead of Abu Dhabi, we had to undertake the drive over there to start the journey.
We were supposed to be making our way to Kandahar in Afghanistan but due to one disaster after another I spent 23.5 hours on the aircraft and only got as far as Kuwait. We then returned back to FJR to try for Kandahar tomorrow. Only a couple of things different were seen in FJR in the dark from the previous visit. Photos as usual on Fotopic, Flickr will have to wait until the weekend when I am home.
So, I am sending this report from the Siji hotel just off the perimeter of Fujairah airport. Some of the higher rooms may give some view of the airport say rooms 801, 802, 901, 902 etc, unfortunately I am in room 803!!
