Any chance of the photographers out there digging out some Air Zim photos? I love this one posted a few years back.

Airshow flypast if I remember correctly. Wonder if Darryl Tarr is any relation to Rex Tarr, he of the Harvard skit amongst many others. :D

Yep, i'm the guy in the dark blue shirt top right video'ing the flypast. Darryl got into big K@K for that, AFAIK Darryl is related to Rex, T'was Airday '95 when this took place at FVCP(Charles Prince, for Jim).

Thanks Darryl, nice to get the real story!! I don't believe in regrets but if I did then one of them would have to be NOT going to that airshow - studying for my A-levels if I remember rightly.

Thanks for bumping this thread up with your photos Warlock! AirZim must have one of the oldest colour schemes around, don't think it's ever been refreshed ala BA/other airlines.
