Debrief: Operation "Horn Buster"

Seven pilots reported for duty. Take off was for once pretty much on time. Two spotter planes and five helicopters took off from Hoedspruit in the pre dawn hours and routed to Phalaborwa to collect to Spec Forces.

From there all routed along the river to just before the Mozambique border, where the poachers were found, and captured.

From there the entire group routed to Kruger Intl, to land safely.

Thank you to the pilots who took part:

ZAV32 Genl Jan (Smokey) Jacobs
ZAV64 Maj Genl Eddy (Phantom) Evans
ZAV70 Col Nico (Sidewinder) Engelbrecht
ZAV92 Maj Hugo (Ironman) Nel
ZAV117 Capt Nico (Brownman) De Lange
ZAV118 2Lt Paul (Wolfsclaw) Earnshaw
ZAV121 2Lt Adrienne Visser (Our newest member, and first lady pilot: (welcome!)
