Hi guys

I have established that the registration that my Fairchild used to wear, is now worn by a Cessna 185. anyone know anything about ZS-BLP? I was hoping to be able to use the same, but clearly it seems to be taken. Any info would be appreciated.

Hi Winchman,

I know this is a little late now, I only came across this now.
That ZS-BLP Cessna was, according to me, built to be Zebra by Jannie Jacobs (Ex SAA pilot and old school friend of mines, father) in the 1990's, he sold it in the 2000's and the last time I saw the aircraft it was April 2016 in a hanger at Petit Airfield near Benoni.
That Cessna was as luxurious inside as a new Mercedes-Benz, with leather seats and music system through the headsets.
