At the African Aerospace and Defense 2010 expo that was help at Ysterplaat, Cape Town I was able to film and interview some of the people that fly and work on the C-17 Globemaster III. This is a the short video I put together from that event.
After a crazy few last months I finally managed to squeeze in another feature.
Filming of this video started in early May 2010 but being winter it was difficult to: a) coordinate diaries and b) get the weather to play it's part. That said, enjoy this 2nd of our "Just Plane Review" on the beautiful yellow 1953 Canadian harvard.
The aircraft currently resides in Worcester, Western Cape and her owner is a proud Willy Tschopp who is undergoing his convertion with CFI, Dick Henry. (Dick's first power plane was a harvard back in 1960 when he was 19 years old.)
She's truely a magnificent peice of history and when her engine turns she jumps to life with that difinitive harvard raw. Graceful and magistic are two more adjectives that describe ZU-SAF.

This "beautiful old girl", as I repeatedly call her during my review is just that... A somewhat docile looking yet exceptionally manoeuvrable aircraft used primarily in the bush war has a distinct sound when she flys by with her 340HP Super charged Piaggio engine.
Denel Hamman gave of his time & money to display the great footage I was able to film out in the field at Morning Star that Saturday morning.
Richard Southall provided us with a detailed walk-thru and shared his knowledge with us on his bosbok ZU-ADK.
