Toulouse day trip (Blagnac & Francazal) 31-1-2018.

The following is a log from a day trip to Toulouse flying Ryanair from/to Stansted at a bargain price (flights were less than £5 each way!). This was an extremely long day, with an 07:15 departure from STN, and a 22:15 departure from TLS in the evening. A car was hired through Ryanair for just £35 including the additional insurance, making the trip very cheap. Please note that despite buying the additional car insurance, I was told at the Goldcar desk that the insurance I purchased was worthless because it didnt cover a wide variety of potential issues with the car. Im not sure if there is any truth in that but might be worth considering in future if it is worth paying the extra money for it.

This was my fifth trip to Toulouse and my brother flew down from LHR with BA (G-EUYA) to join me, as it is very difficult to log, drive, and photograph on your own, especially as the logs need to be quite detailed to enable tie-ups later. We drove around the airfield in an anti-clockwise direction, stopping at the well reported locations available in the ‘net. We then stopped at the ‘famous’ mound although rather than risk losing the exhaust over the rough ground we parked in the restaurant gravel car park at the bottom and walked a short distance up the slope to get a clear view over the fence for photographs. Other local Spotters were also doing this – View as below from later in the day when the sun was finally out.

The last time we came here in 2017 we tried the Panorama tour from the Aeroscopia Visitors Centre but were left a bit disappointed, as there was a lot of talking by the guide whilst the coach was parked in places where aircraft were not visible, so this time we didn’t bother. The 2 museums are worth a look though, both are located at the Aeroscopia centre near the A380 assembly halls. Aircraft, are being moved around the airfield constantly, and you have to be vigilant to avoid missing stuff. Other aircraft are also departing or arriving following test flights, or circuit bashing. After a circuit we headed off to Toulouse Francazal, see description below the Toulouse log. Photos below were taken from inside the Terminal near the panoramic restaurant, the mound, or discreetly through various fences.

Toulouse Francazal 31-1-18

Francazal is a short drive from Blagnac – a short drive that is, assuming the French farmers haven’t blocked the motorway which is what happened to us on the way down. Once you arrive, the area of interest is on the southern side of the runway where there are numerous ATR’s some and other stored aircraft. The car was parked near the control tower and a walk was had through the unmanned security post and up the road into the business park. Various views can be had through various gaps between hangers.

The general view across the ramps from the gate near the control tower.
