Here is ZU-OEM @ Wings Park - on 21 December 2011 when she did her Test Flight. John Waterson flipped over in ZU-TGA who is doing her proving flights
See http://youtu.be/edKzjJkC1FU for a short clip of these two stunning aircraft. Well Done to Abre and his "span" who built ZU-OEM

Wow guys - I think the yellow really suits the Savannah

I am a bit biased as it is my favourite aeroplane colour but in this case I think it's true

Many safe hours in her

Savannah S - ZU-MCD
Seen at Robertsvale with 0 Hours on the Clock - just completed with new iEfis Explorer, Autopilot, Long Range Tanks, Tail and Wing Cameras - All Dressed up in Ferrari colours to celebrate her Italian Pedigree.
Cannot wait to get my paws onto her - going to fly from the Right Hand Seat to use the same hands for the same controls as if flying certified aeries from the left!!
