The Dornier must have had an upgrade to the 6 blade props as there are pictures on the businesswings.de website showing her with 4 blade props.

Thanks for the phodie of those Miracles Brother Skippy!

It was attached to Air Force Base 3 Sqn :crazy1: based at Waterkloof.

Brother Djaak don't be so harsh on Brother Rattles - he is in the festive mood and is seeing extras. :avi:

I'm not giving him grief, just giving him a hand...

Damn I miss the Mirages... my grandparents lived right underneath the downwind to base turn at Waterkloof... used to spend many days sitting on top of the roof of their house watching them come over to land... those were the days.

I have a client here in Cpt that flew III's and F1's... reckons its was the greatest experience of his life... now flying is just a job.

Yes, a 20 min scenic flight but what a awesome experience. They run a good show with excellent briefings. Really enjoyed it and will go again sometime.

If it includes 20 min dual instruction, it may be worth it....
