The supporting program was good as expected, the main attraction rather disappointing. Initially long waiting times at the airfield until the take-off finally took place and then the pilots showed little commitment to fly the pictures in such a way that everyone had the chance to see everything. Hints from the co-pilot could hardly be heard because the on-board intercom system was not working or was working poorly and it was particularly annoying that only 11 of the 15 images were flown to.

Der private Tagesausflug war bestens organisiert und hat trotz des umfangreichen Programms auch zeitlich sehr gut geklappt. Die Ballestas-Inseln mit ihren schroffen Felsformationen, den unzähligen Möwen, Pinguinen und Seelöwen sind ein echtes Naturparadies. Anschließend ging es weiter zum Flughafen Pisco von dem der Flug mit einer Cessna Caravan in Richtung Nazca-Linien startete. Der kurvenreiche Kurs über der archäologischen Stätte ist sicher nicht für jedermann geeignet, doch wird für mich und meine Partnerin ein unvergessliches Erlebnis bleiben. Auch diesmal waren unser Guide und Fahrer sehr professionell und hilfsbereit. Insgesamt ein würdiger Abschluss und gewiss ein Höhepunkt unserer Südamerika-Reise!
