It was an aviator’s dream... a clear winter’s day, Sunday 13 July, and the engine of Ivan’s ‘Schaarman’ started up for the first time since 1976. Yeehah!
It’s been a labour of love for Ivan and Sonica for the last few years, and their hard work was rewarded when the Pratt & Whitney started on the first try as if it was new.
This beautiful plane will be on static display at the Petit Classic & Vintage Fly-in on Saturday 04 October.
