Ok guys so with a very busy schedule juggling work and studies in the time I have here, I have found very little time to photograph like I hoped I would.. However, today we had some very special guests that I could not wait to share! Once again, I onl have access to a terrible editing software so the resizing has blurred the images a bit

As you can imagine the arrival of these two iconic planes really stirred things up a little at 43AS. I am a little disappointed I did not stand near the threshold, as the photos there would have been way more spectacular. I will over the weekend spend some time around these planes and try get some nice sunrise photos before their departure scheduled for Sunday morning.

It was definitely a change in atmosphere having aircraft this size on our grass runways. We all really enjoyed seeing them grace our coastal skies.

What they are doing in Port Alfred?
Bringing any tourists or cargo?
