Douce France

A flight in the center of France.

Châteauroux

The city was a major NATO AFB between 1949 and 1967. Many US servicemen were posted here then. This is not this airport though :grinning_face_with_smiling_eyes:

Flying West, a vast area of ponds and lakes called “La Brenne”. A fisherman’s paradise.

Le Blanc

Not a grand shot but look how the town is organized along a main street toward the bridge over the Vienne river with the graveyard orginally at the outskirt and close to it a large supermarket (a ‘hypermarket’ in franglish)

The village of Saint Savin with its famous abbey. The abbey is well modelled in MSFS. I didn’t find my screenshots of it so you will have to go and look for yourself ! There are two bridges. The foreground one comes from the medieval time and is narrow. The other one is modern and larger.
