Re: Seen at FALA (Lanseria)

I still maintain the C-17 is a brilliant looking machine. Would have looked great operating for the SAAF, but sadly no :crybaby:

Re: GDs Fun Flights - Europe 2017

That old Russian iron is amazing to see. I am always surprised at just how big those aircraft types were that they built. No monkeying around :thinking:
