Had major drama with the farmer re his "mielies". :(( The dude demanded R1000 to get my plane out, for damages. As the plane stands there, not a single plant was damaged yet. Mielies at that stage costed around 20c per plant everything included but excluding harvesting. At worst we damaged about 5 plants getting it out, of which three were still ok and would still yield a crop. I was very happy to pay him R1 for damages and give him a klap for rudeness.
He ran off to go and fine another pilot who went farming nearby and we left right after he did. We were 3 planes in the one field. :D Hence the photo name of 'Dealesville International'. :lol:

This was the first time I ever encountered hostile people after landing in their fields. :( I have been farming with gliders since 1981. This is not a planned event, but an emergency. :? Most farmers are lekker people and always very helpfull and friendly. :D
