Still a bit weird calling it FAOR but nonetheless a nice pic of Muntu and AW85's chariot ZS-IJA arriving at ORT (taken from AvCom and date said to be 21Jan).

Where you guys flying her at all ?

Nice pic 407 :thumbs: I didn't fly her, but if it was in the morning BOEPIE and grumpypilot would have flown it, if it was in the afternoon AW85 would have been on it.

This aerie -  SHE needs some make-up - looks too 'ghosty ' . . . . . .

We like to keep this bird all white as she can be operating today for SAX and the next day for Air Zim.

Avi, I suppose we could say "It's not what's on the outside that counts but rather what's on the inside that matters" (and in the pointy end of things especially)  :cheers: :cheers:

OK, so the cat is out the bag. I am extremely fortunate to be accompanying InterAir on their B732 flight to Ndola tomorrow and flying jumpseat nogal  :cheers: :cheers:. With that being said, I have the following important check list to go through:

(1) Passport
(2) Canon 7D SLR Camera
(3) Canon 710 Mik-en-Druk Camera
(3) 2 x Drift Action Cameras
(4) 1 x Drift HD Ghost Video Camera
(5) Camera Mounts
(6) Formatted Data Cards
(7) iPhone

Am I missing anything?

PS, Muntu is quite correct, video and piccies should be available on Saturday. Heaven help me with the amount of Gigabytes I shall be recording during the day but something like does not come around very frequently.

PPS, I shall remember to charge all kit tonight.

Holy crap. With that amount of kit in the pointy end of things we should be able to produce a 3D movie of Oscar winning proportions. Pressures on folks :-)

And with names like Muntu, Boepie and Bell 407 we are going to be a seriously serious crew tomorrow :-).

Thanks Pine. Hope to do the trip justice. All electronic parafanalia has been charged.

With all the kit in the pointy end I hope we are not over weight :-)
