Debrief: Exercise "Party Time"

Five pilots were up to the trip to the Retreat, no doubt with the rest to follow soon afterwards: afterall, no self respecting SAVAF pilot would miss the party of parties on the island!

Take off was a tad late, but all got airborne, and eventually landed safe at the Retreat.

Thanks to the pilots who took part:

ZAV64 Maj Genl Eddy (Phantom) Evans
ZAV70 Col Nico (Sidewinder) Engelbrecht
ZAV92 Maj Hugo (Ironman) Nel
ZAV118 Maj Paul (Wolfsclaw) Earnshaw
ZAV126 2Lt Celia (Athena) Eloff.
