I haven't been to FAVG for a while but managed to get back there this weekend which was awesome!

Bruce, in the first photo of this very last sequence, looking through the hanger, I believe there is a Baronial nose peeking out behind the RV-9; what is probably a Citation behind <that> and what might be a Shrike Commander behind the Piper Cub (Super Cub?)?

That is the old Comair hanger, closest to the terminal buildings and I suspect that that is now the business/hanger of Daryl Mann? I used to know him long ago, when he joined Comair (Natal). How many hours I have spent in there!

I lived in Durban 1985-1997 .. and passed Virginia on my way back from work .. so I was there virtually every day :) to check what was happening and to take some pics
