Pyramids May 2001112 viewsWe were given permission to fly from 6 October to Cairo city and back via the Pyramids for a low-level sortie along the Nile. I flew in D-EGAX together with a Slovak film team. It was exciting to say the least! I recognized the Al Sarayah swimming pool-cum-restaurant ship I had visited in 1994.
