Springbok Meet At Joburg Feb/Mar - Who's In?

Mon Oct 23, 2006 10:35 pm

Hi All!

I just came back home from a work related 3-month stay in Pretoria. What a great country for an aviation enthusiast! Perfect weather most of the time, plenty of vintage metal flying around... Last chance to fly on a DC9-10...

I'm going back South Africa from February - April 2007. Would anybody like to join in for a meet at JNB during that time? We could go spotting or just have lunch together, or even try to arrange a flight together. (Everybody seems to be a pilot in this country!)

Has there been a JNB meet before? How was it, what did you do? How many people were there?

Might be a good idea. I don't know anyone in RSA but it sounds like a great idea. If really would depend on dates and of course flight loads.

Another thing: I wouldn't put that post here. It is not Non-Aviation related ...

Hi Soren,

Good to hear from you again, you took a long break from, but I'm sure it did you good Smile

It would depend on the flight prices at that time of year, but I could be up for it if I have some money spare. At the end of January I'm planning a trip to Cuba, so likewise your welcome on that one, as is anyone if they wanted to come with me. Hope you enjoyed your time in South Africa,

Great to see you back!  Smile

I wish I could join but I most likely wont be able to afford it.
