heard a rumour last week that all these aircraft ( i take it Stu Davidson's collection) is gonna be moved to one of the new hangers at FAPA between the Tower and accomodation block to be specific.
can anyone verify this information please?
if true it would be truly awesome to have the likes of the seafury,mustang and others on base :D

Really nice photos!

What news on Jim Davis' Tiger Moth. The last time I was there, 18 months or so ago, it was standing in a hangar with the engine exposed.

Taken 29 June 1986 at Port Alfred - 43 not up and running yet or was just starting, cant remember. How old I feel when I look at my "old" pictures. This six was written off years later at Mazzeppa (sp) Bay - if my memory serves me right.
