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,
