Yes it is!!

I have been to two of them,

The first at the Lappalise DZ (there home) they had about seven planes going mad non stop good vibes and good time great place i go there every year.

the last two boogies they have had the AN72 flying and that is a real machine that is about two thirds the size of a c130 with two f*** off jet engines on the wings.

When the AN is in they move about ten miles away to Vichy airport that has a long runway. about 4-5 hundred jumpers there with mad parties!!!!!!!


Go visit Europe and have a blast.

last year were fewer people... and parties were not so mad, cause everybody only wanted to jump...

all the rest is true... 7 minutes to 5000m (16500ft) with around 70 jumpers aboard... awesome...

they are used, a lot. If you want to work there get in touch with the Lapalisse staff.

I was not there last year as Herules Boogie was more important so might have been boring!
but the year before it was cool with daily temp hiting 39C everyday but yes there is a lot of big way stuff and people that take life all to serious.

We havent been in a couple of years, but its so worth it. It really focuses on big stuff: both RW and FF. It would be criminal not to with a large tailgate jet! lol

Its got an awsome vibe too. We really enjoyed it. Smile

hey,

where can I get more info on the boogie?

www.espaceboogie.com just loads as a donut?? Or is it just my browser?

Will it be at Vichy with the AN72? Or at Lap?

Long flights,
James

They must have just changed to that donut as a couple of days ago they had a little bit of info on there but a comment that more details soon.

Last I heard, from one of the load organisers, was that they didn't know if it would be the AN72 or smaller planes at Lapalisse, he was trying to find that from them.

Anything specific that you want to know and I'll see if I can remember.

check http://www.lapalisse-aero.com as they organise the Vichy Boogie. AFAIK they should have the AN72, as (of what I heard) they had it under contract for a couple of years... But contracts can be broken, things can change... But if they don't have an exceptionnal jumpship, I'm not going...

Yeah cause who would want to go to a boogie that onlys has 3 super otters, a skyvan and a casa, regularly does fantastic jumps and it at a fantastic dropzone - noone ever does that, it's only about the planeCrazy

The jet rocks but so does the boogie at lapalisse. Either way round it is surely one of the best (if not the best) boogies in europe, unless anyone knows different?

Re: [Dazzle] Espace Boogie 2005 [In reply to] Can't Post

well to me that specific boogie is more about the plane....
I also go to boogies with 2 porters...
I went to Lapalisse with 1 Twin and 1 Skyvan and had a great time.
To me Vichy is about the jumpship... An72 (+ skyvan and Beech 99), Mi 26 ... something big and exceptionnal.
If they "only" have 3 super otters, a skyvan and a casa, I'd rather drive 2 hours more and go to Empuria to jump the twin and the Otters...

Just a personal opinion.
