MAV's owners base her at FAGC but also own a few a/c at FASY and use the 150 to commute between the 2 airports .... Beats driving! :wink:

Sideslip ...Bollie man!

You were awestruck by the superb flying skills displayed, just after the idiots re-introduction to tailwheel flying. Or how to get current quickly!

Thanks to all that came to stand by, incase I were to screw it into the ground!

Glad to know you all care!

Thanks again!

Don't give them the benefit of the doubt - they all had deck-chairs, popcorn and coke!

So the gossip got around that quickly?

And what was the difficulty rating they gave me?

I mean the excecution rating must have been high ?

Dammit, why didn't you tell me you were doing some aerial photo's? I would have made an excuse to get out there if I had known what was going on behind my back!

:twisted: Very nice pics :D

Sorry, it was a spur of the moment thing. I left Krugersdorp at 17:00 for FASY, had coffee with the Watsons and they joined me on my return flight. My son Peter took the pic's from OSS!

The pro pics from today will be delayed until the Bears get their ADSL line up and running again.... but here is a sample of what we got up to today.

To the Bears, thanks so much for your time today! Sorry we did not get round to the flips as promised but we will definitely make a plan soon! Sundays are just not long enough …..!

To Vaughn and [insert C182RG owners name here :oops: ] thanks a ton for joining in on the fun!

Hey Mike,

Thanks for organizing the day - I had a fantastic time and it was great to see so much activity going on at Bara! I've got some nice video footage from the camera mounted on the wing of the 140 of our formation with the Auster which I'll pass along to you soon.

So, good job and thanks for the day! Also thanks for the photo gurus for all of their efforts and some stunning pics, I gather!
"Happy Flying"

Thanks for organising such a great day - I haven't had that much fun in an aeroplane for a long time :D

Thanks too to the Bears, the camera ship pilots and owners and all the other guys that got out there!

This was my first air-to-air experience, and was great! Just a couple of things from my side though... Being a subject means that the camera ship is directly between me and the sun, and with a slightly scratched/dirty/crazed windscreen, it makes it very difficult to see hand-signals form the photographers. I was also concentrating incredibly hard on the wingtip and wheel of the camera ship to avoid hitting it, which meant I wasn't watching the photographers as closely as they were hoping :lol: What did work were the short "up", "down, "closer" and "further away" commands over the radio. That meant that I didn't have to break focus on the separation between the aircraft...

Also, that seatbelt on the 182 ;) needs to be looked at. I was thinking about it the whole way home, and before going to sleep... There is definitely a washer missing there.

Thanks again to Bruce and Keaton, I eagerly await seeing the pics :D :D
