Hey Boet the aircraft looks beautiful. Have you flown her yet (any pictures of her flying)?

:oops: You may have answered the question already but Scottish people struggle with Afrikaans!

I was in Loeriesfontein this afternoon on my way to Upington and saw Safarie III she is very beautiful and should fly very well I checked Boet's calculation on the computor spreadsheet I have for the Bosvark and the the hand figures and the computor figures are exactly the same. On the forward CoG limit with the pilot and no fuel. That is lekker.
