Gravity sucks.
Gravity never loses - the best you can hope for is a draw.

Does anyone have contact details for Koen ? I'm thinking of building a Sonex and want to have a chat to him.

Koen jou vliegtuig lyk regtig baie goed.Baie geluk want dit is nie maklik om n vliegtuig klaar te nou nie.Gewoonlik die derde eienaar vlieg eers die vliegtuig.
