Rio de Janeiro and Buzios

Honey Mooney in Rio
'Honey Mooney', Armand (co-pilot Geneva - Rio) Angela and Flemming below the Sugarloaf Mountain at Santos Dumont Airport in Rio de Janeiro.

We reached Rio on 31st of December 1996, just in time for the spectacular New Years Eve celebrations on Copacabana beach.

Angela crossed the Atlantic by airline and joined us in Recife.

On the 7th of January, our aviator friends in Rio Margi and Gérard MOSS left for their 9 month flying trip to the extremes of the Americas from Santos Dumont airport. It is a great pleasure to follow their daily progress through their web pages.

In spite of their last minute hectic preparations for this trip, we profited very much from their hospitality and advice about flying around in Brazil.

Angela on the beach in Buzios Buzios is the St. Tropez of Brazil. In fact it was discovered by Brigittte Bardot and her Brazilian boyfriend in the sixties.

Angela is enjoying the beach life in front of our hotel in the old part of Buzios.

Approaching Rio from Niteroy After three days in Buzios we returned to Rio to pick up co-pilot John for the trip back along the coast to Natal.

A violent tropical thunderstorm the evening before had cleared the air, so we were treated to a superb view of the Sugarloaf mountain on our approach to Santos Dumont Airport.
