Seen at Tedderfield (FATA)

Thanks to Essie Esterhuysen I was able to make a flying visit to Solitude Airfield today.

This new build Bucker Jungman is in the process of final assembly. The quality of the workmanship is remarkable and its going to be an absolute stunner when its complete. It is powered by a 160HP inline engine.
