AT THE END OF THE WORLD

THAT COULD BE THE TITTLE OF A BEST SELLER BUT IS NOT. IT IS A REAL PLACE!

LET ME TELL YOU THAT I NEVER BEEN THERE BUT I HAVE TALKED TO A LOT OF CHILEAN AIRMEN THAT HAVE FLEW TO THAT MAGIC PLACE.

THE IMAGES YOU SEE NOW ARE QUITE DIFFERENTS DURING THE WINTER. THE SNOW COVER EVERYTHING AND LANDING WITH A "HERCULES" C-130 IS A BIG DEAL. PILOTS AND CREW MEMBERS ARE HIGHLY TRAINED TO ACHIEVE THIS TASK.

VISITORS TO "VILLA LAS ESTRELLAS" , THE VILLAGE WHERE CHILEAN AIRMEN AND THEIR FAMILIES LIVE THE WHOLE YEAR, CAN GO DURING THE SUMMER SEASON ( SOUTH HEMISPHERE ) ONLY BY HIRING SPECIAL TOURS.

IS AN EXPENSIVE TOUR BUT YOU MUST TRY, BELIEVE IT OR NOT!

WYTON RAF IN MY HEARTH, FOR EVER.

AT THE END OF THE FALKLANDS "AFFAIR" ( I DON´T WANT TO SAY WAR ) I WENT TO WYTON RAF FOR A TRAINING COURSE ON CANBERRAS PR9. THREE OF THESE AIRCRAFTS FLEW TO SOUTH AMERICA AND BECAME PART OF THE CHILEAN AIR FORCE FLEET.

THERE IN HUNTINGDOM, I KNEW WONDERFULL PEOPLE AND I HAVE SPECIAL RECALLS OF THAT STAY.
