Yes it's a total rebuild and engine overhaul, most of the parts are brand new from American Champion Aircraft in America. Its taken Dennis 3 years but it really is an immaculate masterpiece now! I was the last one to fly it up here for the rebuild so I'm hoping to be the first one to fly it for the test flight and engine run in sometime in August :champion: :cool1:

An extra 2 pots would be great but it has a lot of power for what it's worth. Lovely aircraft to fly.

Some of the best days of my life, these were great times, great memories... the late Michel Leusch gave many a introduction into Aerobatics in ZS-MHV. He sadly was killed in a Sbach accident in August last year in China. Most of my friends in this video have all progressed into the airlines somewhere in the world, even El Al :lol:

I tried getting pics of the snow on the mountains this morning coming into Cape Town with the almost full moon shining on it but unfortunately the phone pics just don't do it justice... amazing views. Will try tonight again.

Can't remember if I have posted this before, but a search came up empty. Anyway, F-WWEA A380 display at the FIDAE show Santiago de Chile 2008.

Take-off with engines 1 and 4 over the edge of the runway. Found a bit of dust between the dry grass.
