ZU-SOO is one of the 2 ex BDF early CN235 that they had. It's at Rand apparently to get painted into a camo scheme for the Madagascan AF.

I was rigging the tail of the Super decathlon yesterday and thought the reflection of the wire and tailwheel in the fabric paint made for an interesting pic.

PS, yes I chose to use the funky pink torque seal out of my own free will :lol:
