Yak first to land at King Shaka

Unread post by Darrell Lush » Thu Aug 13, 2009 9:06 am

A little birdie has told me that Yak 18T ZU-BHR is officially the first aeroplane to land at King Shaka. There is a debate raging if it was done as a "dare" but all I know is it created some consternation

I am sure I saw this taking off on Monday morning whilst flying overhead Umhloti. Said to my vrou there's someone taking a chance and he has no doubt pissed off the ACSA people as they were not the first to christen it.

It hasn't even opened yet and there's already a deep cultural problem there... :twisted: #-o

Yaks only take a dump when they have been standing for a while. They do not dump on runways....they have better ettiquette than that. They only mark their territory on standing.... :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

Knew I'd get a response! HA!
Do I know anything about yaks? Nope. Not a thing. Apart from them being russian. With radials. That leak oil. (kidding)
Do I know how to piss Darrell off? Apparently 8)

Sorry Darrell, but mentioning something about oil leaking when the word Yak is used, is like mentioning the dangers of a certain little airfield, and the deap seated cultural problem of another. :lol:
It's irresistable...
