Hello Andre!
I agree with Stefan - so much fun! THANK YOU for writing this literature - I love it!

Here is a screen capture of a black and white version - I hope you can see this better, Andre - So let me try to read this - see my comments below...I think I understand the first few signs anyway, and I can see the wind, and rain and problems flying in the middle of the document - looks like a hard job to drive an airplane!  Val ;-)

Is my reading correct?:

Sign 1 ... Airplane
Sign 2 ... Aeroport
Sign 3 ... Pilot
Sign 4 ... has his hands on the steering wheel of the airplane
Sign 5 ... and while he is holding the steering wheel with the left hand, he uses his right hand to push a lever towards himself and down at a diagonal...which means he is starting the airplane? like putting it into drive? smile - I am new to flying airplanes!

Signs 6, 7 and 8 i am not sure he backing out of the airplane hanger where they parked the airplane?

Sign 9 is taking off, correct?

Smile - Thanks so much, Andre!  This is so much fun! Val ;-)
