Top work, good luck over there, it should generate interest with those looks and performance.
The older I get, the more I am convinced that "A Confederacy of Dunces" is non fiction.

Congratulations to the Whisper team! Proudly South African!

This must be the result of a lot of entrepreneurship, dedication, hard work and pure South African ''vasbyt''- I can just imagine.

When I look at the 4 cylinder Lycoming up front, it must be happy to be home again.

Its a good business move to promote the plane overseas!

A quote from what I have read this week: (I am not negative, just a sad fact why I cannot realized my dream to even buy that Lycoming with my South African salary)

In 1970 your received $1.40 for a rand

by 1980, the rand had weakend to 1:1

today you get 7 American cents for one rand.... an astonishing weakening of the rand over time.

Thought it would be appropriated to post this link to comments made by an RV-7 builder/owner that saw the Whisper at Oshkosh. Very flattering indeed. Russel, you can be very proud. :D http://rvplane.com/?categoryid=10000&dayid=1357
