Hallo Johan

Goed om weer van jou te hoor, ek is so stadig maar seker besig met VP maar gaan maar stadig (Geld en Tyd).

Het begin met template vir die nuwe Instrumentasie paneel. is ook besig met n "Engine Test Stand" om die engine op te toets.

Gaan een van die dae begin met n mould vir n nuwe Petrol Tank.

Groete daar by jou ook.

Cedric

Hi Cedric

Baie mooi - met al die ou swaar instrumente uitgegooi - die swaar canopy weg gegooi
het die ou girl baie gewig verloor en sal lekker vlieg veral met die nuwe enjin wat jy het.
Jy weet ek het die vliegtuig 30 jaar plus gehad op my naam en twee keer verkoop en weer
terug gekoop net omdat ek haar eendag in die lug wou sien.( gelukkig het niemand dit oorgedra nie)
Nou weet ek dit is in n goeie huis en dit is wonderlik om die vordering te sien.
Fantasties man - ek bou saam met jou in gedagtes

groete

Johan

Cedric ek is op pad om te kom toets vlieg.
Hoe gaan dit ou maat -eers met familie en dan die geel gogga
Sit tog foto op.
Die Bushbaby het my seun ge upgrade dat hy nog net n piepie pot nodig het dan is alles daar.
Ek moet net my eie whisky en water saamvat.
Sy vlieg beautiful maar ek strip alweer.
Pieter gaan nou hidroliese remme opsit.
Ek is te bang om die aery te weeg ek dink dit trek nou na n Piper 140 se gewig

Se groete vir Landi

Morning Gents,

I am sad to report that I have had to let ZS-UYT go due to personal and financial constraints, BUT am happy to report that it will stay in the VP community/family.

and hope the new owner will continue with this post and keep us updated with the build.

Regards

Hi Cedric
Life throw curve balls at a time of live you do not need it.
Do not let that get you under.
Every-time i sell a rebuild, i start looking for another one which i try
to lay my hands on just to preserve the aircraft.
It is such a sin to see old homebuilts die or been demolished.
ZS-UYT can go through ten builders. restorers as long as it is not demolished.
Interesting you made a mistake in your previous post and notes ZS-UYS
Uys was a 1960 to 1970 cesna 150 and belonged to uncle GUS UYS.
I did my complete license on this aircraft in Windoek except for conversions etc.
Cedric i am going to mail you regards something i am after in Joburg
Groete vir Yolande
