Some random Rand pics yesterday while I was potting around... A C210 being resprayed and some Classic's as well as a nice looking Arrow. The R44 was waiting its turn for a respray.

Thanks Dylan. It really is an art being able to respray aircraft (and cars etc) :champion:

Well let me start with a few from the Grand Rand Airshow 2017 - more to follow the next few days :surrender:

Start off with a Chopper Formo by B407s friends at Henley, something you don't see every day.
No less than four Bell 222UTs (ZS-HDI/HDK/HSK/HDF) with Aerospatiale AS.365N2 Dauphin ZS-HRX.

Here ZS-HSK Bell 222UT on it own
ImageZS-HSK_20Aug17-FAGM by Aviation Adventures South Africa, on Flickr

Menno also brought an Airwolf out to play - although a slightly newer version in shape of ZT-ROS Bell 430

One for Propnut - Rand 2017 or Dunnottar 1962 :scratchhead:
ImageZU-AOP_20Aug17-FAGM by Aviation Adventures South Africa, on Flickr

Or maybe rather Rand 1936 - stunning to see this 1935-built 40hp Aeronca C3 fly. Painted in same colours as when first arrived Rand back in 1936 :dance:

Fantastic chopper pics GD. All those twins together must have sounded brilliant. Looks like all in all it was a great show.
