To Alderney by (almost) private airplane
by Wojciech Fedoruk - 3 years, 10 months ago
Alderney is a small island slightly separated from other Channel Islands. It is accessible by ferry (mainly during the summer season) or by plane from Guernsey. I recommend this second option, as the journey is performed by small 16-person Britten-Norman Trislander operated by the local airline Air Aurigny and lasts for only 20 minutes. Flying back from Alderney I was one of two passengers and I even had an opportunity to sit just behind the pilot and to observe his activities during the flight.
Alderney itself is a very small (but bigger than Sark and Herm), calm island with nothing spectacular to see. St. Anne, the capital of the island, on Saturday afternoon seemed nearly abandoned. The island might be however interesting for those who like observing sea birds.
