To France...or perhaps not

I'm heading for France later in the week, or at least I was. This is the NFZ that's been announced from midnight UTC, and it covers the strip where the C182 is based.

As mentioned in an earlier entry the NOTAM's wording isn't exactly clear, and with the edge of the zone being literally only a few miles away who knows how I'll interpret it when the time comes.

However, a lot can change between now and Tuesday afternoon, and the way things are going there's a good chance that I'll be outside the NFZ by the time of departure. Of course, by then the rest of France could be in it, but then they may not issue the same ambiguous NOTAM, or they may not put the same ultra-conservative rules in place. We'll see.
