As a seven or eight year old (was born in 1960) I remember this aerie flying past us low level over the beach on the south coast ( I think it was Hibberdene) and shouting "Dad is that grannys aeroplane," her name was Ethel.. everyone knew her as Eth ! :D :D
Must have been almost brand new then! :mrgreen:

You are right, it was imported brand new by a person very dear to me in '67. To be honest I would like to buy it back from whoever owns it now. :)

According to the register her owner lives in the Montana Park (Pretoria) area.

I have this picture of her taken at Wonderboom in 2010

Hey guys,

I'm aware these posts are quite a few years old but if anyone is still interested, I'm the pilot currently flying ETH. She currently operates in Zambia and Botswana and is also at Wonderboom from time to time. She's an awesome plane.
