Very nice thread! I generally have only the cell to take pictures with, but the cameras are damn good today. Lovely pictures! Where will LBS be based in the future? I recall NAM...

Hi Pieter, current planning is to import her to Nam. I'm adding a few more pics from today, also by cellphone unfortunately.

We did a trip to the new wreck and Sandwich Bay today and a photographer friend joined so we'll get some quality pics to post - will do so as soon as I get them. Epic day in Swakop...

Jy's welkom, Andre. 'n Vlieg vakansie deur Namibie is verseker op my wenslysie, maar die SA pilots jaag nou so aan daar by julle dat dit dalk in die toekoms moeilik gaan word...
Het jy al reggekom met 'n spinner :?:

Nee ek kort nog een - hoop nie dit raak 'n probleem nie.

Daar is baie mense wat nie op AVCOM is nie wat hier deurkom - ek sien die heeltyd SA vliegtuie op pad na die lodges toe.... klink of hulle geen probleme het of maak nie ;-).

This is not over the wing of my Mooney, but still nice to see the 182 RG and Mooney flying together and how effective the airbrake is.

Crossing low under the LAX class B airspace to Malibu. The fast way to get across. The Mooney had to slow down over 40kts for the Cessna to stay in formation.

Nice pics Andre, let me know if you're in Swakop 26 Oct for a chat on our Mooneys. I am there for the weekend. Unfortunately I couldn't fly down because I am only there for a short period. Nick
