LOL..., I second that. Piet and I and Ferdi have flown through and around South Africa and we have done many fly inns, airshows and brekkies to local lodges :D You promised to come and visit once, but did not fancy the cross country [-X

You missed out on a lot of fun :D

I can vouch for that.

I have many times with carlton , me in the cubby and him in the KR2 on some occasions and in the bushbaby on others. As soon as my KR2 is ready, i am hoping that a few more will be ready and then we can plan a KR2 flyinn,

what you guys say?????

My plane should be ready sometime in December. Although we are far from Pretoria, i feel we should defenitly have a KR fly in somewhere in the country. Here is only 2 known KR2`s in Cape Town . Mine and Sarel`s.

I believe the three seat KR is also based in the Cape somewhere, maybe Stellenbosch?

Flykr posted a pic of her on the "photos of south african KR's" thread on page two-ZS-VKO. I believe it is owned by Marius Roberts and is based at Stellenbosch. Carlton, sorry for giving you a hard time about the fly-inn thing but it would be very cool to see more than three kr's together for a change.
Sorry to you too Norman for hi-jacking your thread, we will be following progress closely.
