Seen at Brakpan/Benoni Airfield - FABB

Unread post by Anton Nel » Sat Feb 11, 2017 8:00 pm

It is time to dedicate a thread to Brakpan Airfield after today. It was one of my best experiences at any airfield. The flying was epic and to be able to use an ALOIII as camera ship to photograph the Bosbok and then do visa versa on the return leg is something one can only dream about.

Great breakfast at Kitty Hawk, a long chat about aviation, flying and life in general with great friends over a coffee!!
Rob, Juba, Henry, Willie; it is an privilege to know you gentleman and thank you for a unforgettable day out!

Juba is a pilot par excellence and can only bring a smile to your face whenever he is at the controls of any aircraft. Thanks for the return leg in the Bosbok from Kitty Hawk Juba. You fly that Bosbok like a legend!

It is an absolute pleasure going to Brakpan airfield. Beautiful grounds, clubhouse, friendly people always willing to have a chat, bustle of aircraft today and a helicopter sim session to boot. Clubhouse is beautiful Rob!

Where friendships are forged and stories told, neutral ground where knowledge and experience is shared.
Happiest times are usually found "under the wing"!
