Thanks HS, the first link does not open. Says the link may be somewhere else?

And if I am correct, the other 3 are links to exactly the same FB album?

Tomorrow (Thursday 7th) I once again jet off to Pemba - need to do some maintenance and repairs on Amani, and then do a couple of trips before the end of January.

I did not get my NPL, in fact I never even got to fly the Jabi solo, or fly my Jodel, at all!

Weather was uncooperative, not to mention me being man-down with flu for two weeks.

Oh well, slowly, slowly catchee monkey..........

I will report once I have a chance to breathe on the other side.......

Will have to contact Rob Mc Cullem if he still got it, to top it of it was still the old video camera system moerse camera and video chest pack :fantastic: :fantastic:I think it was out of ZS-MAW

So does that mean that CD is not allowed to jump out of the airplane?

She's sitting in a hangar in Port Alfred - keys are in the 'plane, and the instruction booklet is on the L/H seat......

Oh, but there's a minor problem in that the aircraft's radio license has expired............ :timeup:

Will have to do some remote-control application, somehow!
