This frequent avcommer wishes it was him, but alas, he was never near FASH on Saturday :( Seeing your pics Snoops makes me very sorry I wasn't :cry: :cry:

Did some imaginary aviating though, read SAF from front to back :P

Will have to check the bank manager's mood a bit but there might remain a few boggerols in the kitty for a few minutes in old faithful this month :o

Yup, but where were they? :shock:

Chipmunk's at FACT now. :roll: ...If I saw any of those two there, I would have taken photos of em both...for sure. :wink:

Next time you'll need to keep me there with a beer till they arrive or get tugged out of the hangar...love those aircraft :lol:

This couple were cranking BCV all morning...While the pilot's softness was playing around with the lavender in discontent....wishing they could go flying, he was priming, cranking..... Even I gave up on them eventually... :wink:

PS: Check the two blokes on the deck... guess they were discussing this at lenght.

Chippie still at FASH... New owner decided to keep her there if I understand correctly. Last week Chippie & Tiger departed together "into the sunset" (quotes especially for Skybound :twisted: ), quite a pretty sight seeing the 2 fly together.

The one with the cap on is me :shock: The Chippie is back, but the owner is still looking for hanger space to rent at FASH. Maybe you know somebody that can help out :?:

The Chippie and Tiger took of after 3h00. You must have just missed them.

Another sunny day in the Cape winelands...

The Vampire is coming on well, Swallow and the guys started spraying the silver layer today.

Harvard was doing much flying and the later it got the more aircraft got fired up.

All in all a great day for flying down here in the Cape vineyards.... :wink:

Thanks to Space ....we managed to get some pretty nice shots of the Harvard in flight. :wink:

Always a pleasure to share our local airfield with AVCOM.

As always its a two way street, what photos would there be if our FASH's pilots didn't come out to fly their machines?

That's always appreciated...so this is my small way of saying thank you. :wink:

Today a cold front has moved in (dark grey cloud bank creeping closer and closer from the NW) so there won't be much flying...

So I'm off to go light the fire place...Chiao.
