I really had to concentrate! I noticed the two collectives as I was about to take off, when I pulled the one, nothing happened! :lol:
Well, be honest here: when you pulled "the one", the only that changed was the expression on your face. So to speak. :twisted:

Hi all. I see this thread has gone quiet, but maybe this will be of interest. I came across this Gazelle ZU-ROU sitting on a property in Glen Eden, near East London. I have been unable to find any more information about it. It really was a surprise to see it sitting there in the middle of nowhere basically.

Does anyone have more info on it?
