Huh? No, surely not? Didn't Boet (Voges) originally set up shop on the field at Empangeni, before moving across to the bay?? (Do correct me if I am wrong)
Hi Christopher.

You are correct.
The full story will be in the next issue of African Pilot regarding the Histrory of Alton Aero Engineering.

Thanks.
