Re: Flight over Witbank this Thursday morning

Some chop had an awesome flight over Witbank and the Witbank dam area this morning (^^) . Dead still, mist on the dam and a beaut sunrise. I don't see how it could be better. I had to watch from my balcony with a towel around my waist and shaving cream on my face. Very jealous... :mrgreen: :mrgreen...

Re: Bought me a Ryan Navion

Thing is it might be considered an insult to some as the ARMY never used this plane in RSA - it was actually flown by Oom Willie (Mr Navion) to south west and back for dignitaries etc....

here is another design i also quite like - but cannot make a decision!

Re: Trikes along the Big Bay Beach (Cape Town)

Built up or not - its illegal to fly 50ft off the ground ANYWHERE unless you landing - ESPECIALLY over a nature reserve. Yeah sure, 10 x dogs walking on the beach at the same time as 10 x 4x4 vehicles or quads will destroy more plant, bird and sea life in, and under the sand than a 4x4 .. NOT!!! ##...
