  • The Kapnic took place on wednesday on the beach of Leffrincouke with some pictures from a Blockhaus covered wih plenty of pieces of Mirror . Close from it , we reached for midday , the Fort of Leffrincoucke to take the picnic meal. A flight has been done from this 1870 years Fort and we went back to the Fort of Ambleteuse to finish the trip.
    On thursday we flew on the site of a castle of the XV th Century with Michel Delhaye , Pierre Lesage and Wolfgang Bieck . Jean Daniel Chantelauze was there too like Peter Van Erkel , Barbara and Peter Bults.
    We spent a wonderful Kapnic day coming back by crossing the harbour of le Tréport , Ault Onival Cayeux beach and the natural site of Le Hourdel.
  • I have seen some great pictures. One year I'll make it. Unfortunately it clashes with the busiest work period for me :-(
  • Missed it this year!

    Shooting for 2020.

  • For me it usually clashes with three family birthdays (one is mine) so I've never been able to make it.
  • Thank you for your interest.
    This year we had two days of KAP.
    Pierre lesage was with us with Peterbults and Jean Daniel Chantelauze with his two sons; Wolfgang Bieck was there too with his wife Mongie and Peter Van Erkel with Barbara. Sébastien Pochon came with us.
    The first one on wednesday with 3 targets:
    The Blockhaus of Leffrincouke full of pieces of mirror on this seaside;
    For the lunch we went to the Fort of Leffrincouke and we took some aerial pictures.
    We finish the day close to the fort of Ambleteuse with a very strong wind.
    The second day was to take some pictures from the castle of Rambures (from XVth century ) close to Blangy sur Bresle.
    Michel Delhaye met us on this historical site.
    The weather conditions were fine for every body.
