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

Thanks again :thumbsup1: Last few before I go back to the Euro trip report is from the Mango flight back to Lanseria. Not the biggest variation in the pics I am afraid.

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

Many thx Marc :thumbsup1: I seem to remember that Border Air had an Islander in the old days, could this not be the same one? No idea on this one, never heard of Border Air I am afraid. After a short wait in was on to Cape Town with the good people from Cemair on the Beech 1900D. https://farm5.stati...

Short continuation of the trip report today with little aviation content :yikes: In Denmark we went looking for other flying creatures.

Re: Cool airplane pics from wherever (2017)

Awesome pics Raffles!

The ion-thruster propulsion system doesn't seem to be used much - 9H-BEC has been standing in the same corner seemingly engineless (to those not in the know) since at least May.

Very nice Raffles, 6W-HLA AW139 Senegal Government :champion:

Also nice pics B407, if only they could film a local F1 race in the near future.

Re: GDs Fun Flights - Europe 2017

Okay then - just so you don't think I have only planes on my mind :sparkle: Compulsory visit to the Acropolis (at least for me as a first timer to Athens and Greece). The main bit was packed in scaffolding, but this shed was a reasonable backdrop. https://farm5.staticflickr.com/4486/23955020148_003f...

Anyone have an idea of how much "smaller" the -800 variant will be?

The -800 is the new -200 and the -900 the new -300.
I believe airframe-wise very little if any difference. Engines is key.
