Baie dankie Oom, dit was 'n EPIC naweek ## =D*

Ja, min trikes gesien, net ons van Crosswinds en die Potties manne, dink een ander trike van Wingfield maar dit was al (**)

Die weer was awesome, so kan nie verstaan hoekom daar nie meer trikes was nie #-0

Kan nie wag vir die volgende een nie, moet se MISASA was number 1 in die event, baie awesome =D*

Thanks Sad-Ham vhpy

Was it perhaps you we saw at Parys Saturday morning :?:

Must say you have a beautiful field =D*

Coming over the water on finals between the trees was seriously mind blowing for me ^*^^

Perhaps Wingfield should organize a breakie fly-in, us from Crosswinds will be there for sure ##

Hi Madman

I was at Parys but only drove in later the morning.

Yes , it is nice at Wingfield , awesome late afternoon flying and sunsets over the loch. Would be nice if there were more of us there to build the camaraderie like you guys have, only myself and my mate flying trikes from there at the moment.

Will speak to the owners and see what they have to say about a fly-in breakfast , I am sure there should not be a problem (we don't have kitchen facilities but I could organize coffee and boerie rolls) .

cheers

Hi Sad-Ham s079

I would love to hangar there, seeing your shadow on the water as you coming in on finals was really EPIC ##

When you talk about arvie flips, I miss my wingman Gunther who moved to the UK.We always did Sunday arvie flips and had a "VrouSlaan"(Richelieu and diet coke) afterwards ##

At our field we have many awesome trikes and thunderbirds with a thick pile of dust on them :cry: We a hand full of trikers and two Savannah pilot's who try and fly as much as we can ##

We also have one "Phoenix" (Thunderbird rising from the ashes) :lol: who will be back in the air soon (!!)

Coffee at Wingfield would be great, any reason to fly there again s040

Have an awesome one s023

(^^)

Hey pilots s024

I had the awesome opportunity to do a flyaway to Pyramid in Barberton with the Microlanders ## WOW...was it EPIC and beyond =D*

I flew alone from Crosswinds to Pyramid, at first I was a bit concerned that flying alone all that distance was not a good idea, but then with today's technology, smartphones, apps, etc, it set my mind at ease as my wife was able to track me from take off to landing ##

An awesome 214 miles from Crosswinds to Pyramid, with one stop at Benics in Witbank for a P and a fuel top up ## Was nice chatting to Borris again after such a long time, always kind and helpful vhpy

Landed at Pyramid just after 11am, where I was greeted with a very pleasant warm atmosphere, not only from people already there but also the nice Barberton sun );))

Shortly after landing,we jumped in the bakkie with the other peeps who waited for a lift as there were only 2 double cabs for transport, one being Brian's and the other GavinL's kind Uncle Richard who assisted with the breakie run after we landed Friday morning and the fuel runs for the Friday arvie flip as well as the rest of the weekend fuel, chow and dop run ##

The EPIC part was landing at Pyramid after a 214 mile flip, having breakie, refueling and after couple hours chilling and getting comfy, heading out for another two hour flip in the valley..HELL YEAH (!!)

After the arvie flying, we tied down, got warm, chilled around the awesome fire...then enjoyed a feast of note...thanks again to all involved ^*^^

The next morning, it was a fuel top up and a 25L on the back seat for a days awesome flying to Numbi hotel for breakie via Sabie and Graskop with the most beautiful scenery including Mac Mac falls, Gods Window and a lot more :)

Soooo many hours of awesome flying in one weekend...16hrs in total for me...that was EPEEEEEEC ## ## ##

Thank you to Merv and Brian, as well as all who made it the most EPIC weekend , this is really one that I will never forget ^*^^

Below are a few pics in random order, some I took and some from GavinL...Thanks Gav ##

Hold your mouse cursor over the pic for the pic info :)

Thanks Darkhelmet, loading pics are soooo much easier now s023

Adios amigos :-(-(
