A "new" set of well scrubbed-in 850 X 6 slightly pre-owned vet tekkies. 6-ply this time. The 800X6`s were 4 ply, and there were too many punctures.( And the canvass has started to show in too many places!! :oops: :oops: ) The deck angle is now steeper, and therefore my 3-point touch downs is a lot slower. And it looks rather cool, does`nt it? (!!) (!!) (!!) (!!) (!!) (!!) (!!) Costs me a mile or two per hour, but I am in no hurry!

Ou tekkies, nuwe tekkies, net nodig om in die lug te kom, en dan later weer veilig terug. Opstyg is opsioneel, die landings is verpligtend!! My Moeder is 83 jaar oud, en ek en sy het laat vanmiddag n sundowner vluggie geniet. Vir my is dit n groot voorreg om na soveel jare saam nog met haar te kan gaan vlieg. Sy geniet die vlieery geweldig, en hou selfs die stok ook bietjie vas, maar reken die Explorer is bietjie baie meer "gevoelig" as wat die Warrior was!
