I was at school with George at St Andrews in Bloem and will always remember him as a proper guy.

His Avcom persona was also pretty huge, and I still miss his banter.

RIP

Animal the Albatros?

He called the RV4 'Meerkat'
Due to the price increase in ammunition, do not expect a warning shot.

Sig Sauer, kinda like Glock except for men.

The Animal is the Bushbaby with the Rotec Radial motor in it. Not sure who owns it now.
