A letter from down under

Feb

For many years I have had a picture Archie Kemp gave me when I left SA, hanging above my bed. It is of a Baobab, and I decided to put it in a frame. This led me to wondering how Archie is getting on, and so I did a Google search and there were all these references to him and the EAA of SA. Great to see he is alive and well, and still has the 195.

Fly in to Brits

Feb

Dear All,
Just look how wonderful Anton and I started the year, with one of the ‘senior boys’ from EAA, Rob Jonkers, taking Anton with us to Brits for breakfast from Wonderboom Airfield.
Wonderboom had fuel supply problems, so Rob had to ask his cousin, Martin, to fly a jerry can of fuel over from the airfield where ‘cousin’ hangars, so that Rob could have enough fuel to take my son flying, and to fill the aircraft with fuel at Brits. I ask you, the trouble some people will not go through just to do something for other people is just amazing.

Being a microlight pilot and a proud member of EAA Chapter 973 for a few years now, I was wondering what is the main component of any motorised experimental aircraft. That’s easy, you say, either airframe, engine or propeller.
