EAA Airventure Oshkosh 2017 here we come.We have had the surprise of a lifetime.

But first - Project Cuba was cancelled due to matters totally out of our hands. It seems it wasnt the right time in space for this to work. A little disappointing I'd say but we quickly came to terms with the decision when a special couple of friends namely Mark Clulow and Marie Reddy changed the proverbial goal posts.

They decided that the EAA Airventure Oshkosh 2017 seemed like a better alternative and nothing more could make me more excited.

What was an extremely humbling experience, is when the EAA SA Chapter 322 members rallied together and continued raising funds so that Gerda and I can go and enjoy an experience of a lifetime!!

I have searched high and low to find other words more powerful that can replace "THANK YOU" but to no avail because those 2 words do not even come close to expressing our grattitde and appreciation.

It would be unfair to single out any one of those numerous people - some who wish to remain anonomous anyway - who so unselfishly donated towards this lifetime trip. We will be forever grateful. There are days that I have to pinch myself and days that I wonder what did we do to deserve this! generosity!

We will also have the pleasure of travelling with Niel Bowden's Air Adventure Tours and the rest of the South African contingent -over a hundred strong!!!
