Hi Photon,
We must have been there at the same time .. I was waiting for Air Bear who was flying ZS-DAC .. perhaps you got a pic
Sorry Buce, I don't have a pic of ZS-DAC.
The pics I made were all taken around 09:00hrs when quite a few planes lined up for take-off.

I did take a pic of DAC on the ground which I might post later.. but I did not get a flying shot

Hi Bruce/ uncle Ray

Do you happen to have any pic’s of Piper arrow ZS-LCS from the 90’s please, she belonged to TAS flight school at Rand and I think it crashed in the early 2000’s if I recall.
Can’t pickup anything on google either.
Thank you

Yes, I saw it in formo with another aircraft over Randburg today - was quite a nice sight

Looked like they were taking some air to air pics
