UPDATE :
Hot & High unfortunately turned into Wet & Wild. (Capetonians not complaining about rain)
Unfortunately the weather will get the better of us this weekend with low cloud and rain predicted out of Cape area. Sutherland temperatures also predicted mid teens, so not very high DA’s to test performance.
We will try again in future to put this adventure together, maybe doing some cold weather tests in July in Sutherland.

watch out for animals .. last time I landed there, animals were caught within the runway fence .. also one runway was flooded so we had to land with some cross wind ..
