ZU-RON owned by Ron Coburn at Morningstar airfield outside Cape Town, has just been repainted. Was all white before, now has some nice red stripes.

To make the picture smaller, open the picture in paint and click on Image then go to Strech/Skew In Horizontal and Vertical put in, say 60%. Save the picture under a new name. No select Upload attachment on this forum, below your writing, and call up the new saved photo.

If not send the pictures to tourinfo@intekom.co.za and I'll post them for you. :D

Willie, thanks
You will see on a thread that I announced being the first South African to fly in the Sovereign airspace of the republic Of Georgia-yesterday was my MAIDEN FLIGHT
I started my commercial licence here and building hrs with the Aeroprakt 22

it really flies WELL, should consider one for fun at home, cheaper to run than the C182 by far
I included the panel for the one thread as well, you will see no DI , but two Altitude meters, beacuse we fly from a undisclosed FAR close to the main Tbilisi International airport

The scenery was taken today as I turned down wind-the river is the main one running through the capital city SKWARI river ( instructor took control for a moment or so, and then on final some snaps over his shoulder

Many thanks
Willem
