Re: GDs Fun Flights - Plett with King Air and Cemair Beech 1900

I seem to remember that Border Air had an Islander in the old days, could this not be the same one? Doug Hayward (RIP) who owned Margate Air back in the late 70's used to operate an Islander and Cherokee 6 between Margate and Durban (Louis Botha in those days). Cant remember the reg of his though, ...

Re: Seen at FAWK (Waterkloof AFB)

The Qatari head of State is visiting. Much controversy re the visit as the main munt apparently pee-ed them off changing a dinner or something. The main munt was scared he'd be embarrassed due to protest action in Clitoria today. http://gallery.internationalflyerz.co.za/SeenFAWK/FAWK2017_001.jpg Ni...

Re: RIP iFlyAfrica.info

Yip a sad day for FA indeed. I really enjoyed the forum up until about a year ago when the site started going south due to some unsavoury types with no interest in the wellbeing of the forum spoiling it for everyone else. As a result many of the core members disappeared. Thanks Guns and the FA team ...

Like anything, blame the past, if it's not apartheid, it's Coleman Andrews.... Keep living in the past, it will get you going places. Agreed. Not sure who penned the letter if not herself.
