Sasol Solar Challenge

An early morning for the start of the Sasol Solar Challenge cheering on the Dutch TU Delft/Nuon Solar Team car for the race to Cape Town. 9 cars at the start - although a few were still busy sorting issues. Great to see the South African Air Force fly-by in best Formula 1 style. The hightech monster...

Here two sets where I couldn't decide on my favorite ARHLACs - quite like the one where they are very close but not sure if the one is covered too much :scratchhead: https://farm2.staticflickr.com/1874/44085374174_b557c38396_b.jpg ARHLACs2_20Sep18-FAWK by Aviation Adventures South Africa , on Flickr...

There should also be a new Gulfstream at the AAD this year boasting an extended range.
The brand new G600 should arrive JNB tonight and relocate to WK.

Re: AAD 2018

Quick visit this morning - most of which was spent in traffic :sad: By far the most uninspiring AAD static I have seen since my first back in 2012. Spoiled I guess and still a few gems to be found. Highlight for me was this vintage LC-130H from NY Air National Guard on skies - usually spending time ...

Yours truly after 6 nights in the Central Kalahari - 900+ km from going off the tar road in Letlhakeng till seeing tar again in Makalamabedi. https://farm2.s...

Re: Moré / Hoezit / Morning / Hosh Pagamies ... 2018

So after putting it off for the last 3 months, I decided to take the MAX exam today after reviewing the differences course on the CBT. Unfortunately I passed with 100% so I can now expect punishment by flying the MAX on layovers. Once I'm flying it, I'll take some pics for you B407 :thumbs: Well do...

Ok I guess we'll have to wait than. Meanwhile I've set my bookmark to active topics so it's easier to see what's going on.
That is the page I have missed since the update :thumbsup1:

I haven't seen a trip report from GD in ages nor any shots he takes while in the bush :yikes: Sorry, been busy-ish and lazy! Will get back to it, have a couple where you just had snippets via WA.

Re: Aviation Memorabilia Thingies

Let me start with these recent acquisitions - had to fork out R10 at the SPCA Charity shop in Pretoria. While maybe not the most important bit of Aviation history these must be fairly rare. Inflight glasses from East Africa based Airline Alliance Air. They operated a single SAA Boeing 747SP (ZS-SPA)...
