I think FABL is mostly ...quiet ... its the stuff at Tempe we never get to hear about. Is there not at least one Tiger Moth based there ?
If the Samba in your avatar is yours ...you can start with a pic of that !

Bearcat,
When did you take the pic of the 'van? What was she doing in Bloem? I did my conversion on her in June 2003 at Lanseria. She was there for MPI, and was busy on contract (freight) in Namibia at the time. For someone who up till then had only flown Cherokees and piston Cessnas (exception of Seneca), it was an eye-opener to get to drive a machine with so much power!! Erection material!
Flying is inherently safe - it's man that makes it dangerous.......................

Well, one does not wish to blow one's trumpet, but there seems to be a dearth of pics from FATP.

Herewith therefore, a few of my first flight in a Robbie 44 - one was absolutely gobsmacked.
