Learjet and myself flew up. We left early and the wind was not too bad. Wind at Kobee-T was directly across the runway but not unmanageable, even one guy on a trike arrived. Gathering was great and the brekkie superb! Flight back took a while but was not bumpy at all and we popped in at Morningstar where the wind was properly kak. Then back to Fisantekraal with a great view of the HECTIC fire on the Grabouw mountains.

You GO boys! Us ou manne will rather drink beer and watch rugby on days when the wind slaps us around like this.
Well done JT & DL, glad you represented the Gyro fraternity on our behalf.

When is Anton's new gyro being launched?

Well we certainly had a lekker tailwind of note from Goedverwacht to Kobee-T where we were welcomed with a magnificent fry-up breakfast. Anton has a great set-up with a very nice asphalt runway, and whilst the wind didn't play along today I hope Anton will arrange another fly-in soon as it really is a great little airfield to visit. I was expecting a turbulent ride on the way back but it actually turned out to be a lot smoother than expected despite the howling wind and the return leg took just under an hour. Had some fun with the hover landings at a very windy FAFK and reminded myself just how much fun gyros are in the wind :-)

There was a yellow gyro flying of Moorreesburg +- midday? Was it you Dave? I did a radio check to hear if I could recognise the voice.
