That tail is painful to look at. Please give me a pencil so I can fix the plans.

Absolutely, Richard, I was just thinking what a pretty little aeroplane it is until you drew my attention to that awful devil's horn thing at the back. What were they thinking of?

They should have spoken to Mr de Havilland about borrowing one of his aircraft's beautiful tails.

Totally agree about DH, Jim.

I always feel I could improve the lines and look of most aircraft (there are a few that come out natural beauties - Cessna Crusader, Beech 400, Beech Duke). But DH manage to remain extremely pretty, even after 70 + years. It would be hard to improve their lines for purely aesthetic reasons.

Great to see MZK in action again... it used to be in a black scheme with an exotic multi coloured swirl and has been at Rand under restoration for many years although I have yet to see the final result in the flesh ... so again .. exactly the type of pic that has been missing off the photo thread recently =D> =D>

The reason Rocket Ron has thrown big coin at ZS-TDC to make it look as pristine as it is ... is perhaps that his father flew an Aeronca in the SAAF at the beginning of WW2. Now we just await roundels to be applied to TDC

Yeah, Ron mentioned it had the fuselage of an L-4 and J3 wings? Says he wants to paint it olive green and add roundels in homage to its history.

You’re correct on the fact that Ron’s old man flew the Aeronca in WW2. I got to see it being hand propped yesterday which was interesting and not something I’d want to do - you need big cahones..

Unfortunately i didn’t get a picture of Ron’s Piaggio which was also catching some rays yesterday afternoon in prep for a repositioning flight to the boom next week.

There are lots of treasures hidden in the old hangars at Bara....
