What a perfect way to get fantastic coverage for Basestation GD. Unfortunately not :champion:

Just found out that is was a camera ensconced in the sock thingy with the poking up antenna for connection to the laptop inside the aerie. OK 87J, satisfied now?

Very cool...

Flippie (Spingbok) is due in in a Dragon Rapide from down south around 1430L

We see it at the airshow as well. Who else is going.

The Dragon Rapide is a lovely loiking aircraft indeed and will be quite a sight at the airshow.

Sadly, will not be there this year but I wish all who attend a great day. Will look out for some pics here :good:

First teaser from the Rand Airshow - I can agree with the moaners that it probably wasn't the strongest airshow ever - but still plenty things to keep me happy.
Actually the Dragon Rapide alone was worth the drive and entrance for me :biggrin:

Started out with this beautiful formation with ZS-JGV DH.89A Dragon Rapide in formation with ZS-COX DHC-1 Chipmunk (and outside the frame ZS-DXO another Chipmunk) :cool2:
