Happy new owner of ZU-DEB!!

Ross and myself went to collect the Savannah S in Upington on Monday. Rudi did a great job checking everything including full fuel tanks to get us back home to FAPE.
ZU-DEB will be based at the airfield in Port Elizabeth (her original city of fabrication).
She is in spotless condition with only 37 hours on the clock.
I'm ecstatic to say the least!
:D :D

We flew to Kalahari Oryx, about 120km east of Upington. We stayed over night so as to get an early start back on Tuesday morning.
The flight was uneventful with a 20 knot tailwind getting us home in just over four hours.
What a great plane!!

We stopped off briefly in Graaf Reinet to stretch our legs and go to the bathroom!
