Re: Seen in The Cockpit

Formation flying is really really awesome. I recommend anyone who hasn't done it to try and get a chance to experience it with some of the good teams around SA.

Definitely an art I wish to pursue in time :thinking: :lol:

Re: Seen at FAVG (Virginia)

Yours truly showing Ayrton around Virginia and getting his naughty little butt out the house a bit I look forward to the day I can take him for his first flight with me, however he is already a regular Mango traveler having already done more flights than the average adult in a B738 http://gallery.in...
