During the week I saw the wind prediction for the weekend. Since I was off, from work, I quickly rounded up a squadron of Migs. Planed a Fly-in and crossed thumbs. We had a very good turnout. There were in excess of 12 Migs. But since there were less pilots that Migs, The electrics had to sit out this round. Daron was also there, but not in spirit, as he was in the bush looking for his Jart, which is still there somewhere. The wind was a tad more West that we would have liked, but the strength and lift was plenty. Thanx to ALL who came and supported, if not fly, your presence there was much apprecieted. Here are SOME pics, I will load more tomorrow. Watch this space.
These photo's were taken by

Hanno Prinsloo


Please pay his page a visit as he just happened to be at the slope when I needed someone to take the team photo...and a good one it is.

Thanx again Hanno.
