Preparation of my Zero G Flight

Only 12 days until my Zero G Flight. Can’t wait of course. I found a really nice walk in Bordeaux. http://www.reisroutes.be/stadswandelroutes/bordeaux-de-complete-wandeling-21-3.aspx

I’ll be flying with KLM/Air France from Schiphol to Bordeaux on Thursday and will be flying back the next evening (with a stop in Paris).

In my search for more information I found the following interesting stuff.

More information on Microgravity can be found here http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Parabolic_flight#Weightless_and_reduced_weight_environments
In Microgravity 0 G can be reached but gravity is very small. There’s also a drop tower in het Erasmus High Bay area of ESTEC.

Vladimir Pletzer has his own Wikipedia page. Cool. But it’s not up to date. He has flown on 11 different Zero G planes and has flown over 6,000 times. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vladimir_Pletser
