I took that flight (flight n° 651) back in 11/09/1984.
Loganair (then still an independent carrier) G-BFNV. It was two minutes indeed.

Leuven (if you or your friend live there) to Arosa ca. 730 km and probably 8,5 hours driving (if there is no traffic jam and/or snow). Payment on French highways may be r...
