b]Vintage flight!![/b]

As the year winds down, it seems only fitting that we end it off with a laid back vintage flight.

For those of the SAVAF members who would like to participate in the last On line Event of 2013, please report for duty at FAYP (Ysterplaat AFB) at 18h00z, and make sure that your favourite vintage aircraft is well polished and ready!

Aircraft available are the following: DC3, DC4, P51, Spitfire and Shackleton.

Take off will be from FAYP, then in formation we will route to FALW (Langebaan AFB) low level along the coast. From langebaan the route will be to FACI (Citrusdal), FACE (Ceres), FARS (Robertson), Stilbaai (FACY), then back along the coast, overflying Cape town Inlt to land at Ysterplaat once again.

Once landed at Ysterplaat, this Colonel is treating all to a slap up meal and drinks in the Officers Mess at AFB Ysterplaat!!!

Debrief: Vintage Flight:

Four die hard SAVAF Pilots reported for duty for the last On Line Evening of 2013.

The flight got airborne out of Ysterplaat with a mixed bag of vintage aircraft, namely 1 DC3, 1 Shackelton and 2 Mustang P51 escort fighters.

The flight routed to Langebaan, Ceres, Robertson, Overberg and along the coast to return to Ysterplaat via a low fly by over Cape Town.

Thank you to the pilots who took part in this very nice laid back final 2013 flight:

ZAV13 Genl Corney (Knight) Keller
ZAV64 Col Eddy (Phantom) Evans
ZAV70 Lt Col Nico (Sidewinder) Engelbracht
ZAV92 2Lt Hugo (Iron Man) Nel.
