Epinal. Never heard of!
"Epinal. Never heard of!", the perfect reason to go, isn´t it?.
Service IG Aviation TE 354 operated by Sky Taxi Poland SP-MRC
Scheduled: 11.20 // 13.05
Actual: 11.25 // 13.10
A well used bird it is, since 15.03.1989 airside with Brit Air, DHC, Air Botnia, Lagunair and finally Sky Taxi Poland
Nothing special is to notice here
And the stats:
Leg no. 1408 at all and no. 8 on the Saab 340A
And here we see the latest visited airports with a new entry, no. 348 for EPL:

A short visit to the "Aéroport Nice Côte d'Azur" it was.
And further out northern side for the
"Aéroport d'Épinal - Mirecourt".
If you need a description for "In the middle of nowhere", that´s a great example. No scheduled service at all beside this one, the airport usually used as a training station by the airlines for touch and go maneuvers.
Just a couple of cows may be disrupted from their important biz producing precious milk for french delicious local cheese.
The next larger train station is in Vittel where the water comes from. An interesting place, sure, but wihout any trains today, thanx to a self written sign at the stations desk, "Staff is on strike". A bus service replaces the train, in theory. The nice lady at the tourist office explains that the bus in the morning don´t show up at all. A taxi, don´t ask how much, saves the way to Epinal from where really the SNCF is running to Nancy and Strassbourg.
Here are the pictures:
More to come.
