Bunny Huggers and Easter weekend
Easter weekend is generally a wet and iffy affair with the first of the winter storms coming in and giving us right old klap.
That’s why make Easter eggs… to keep us amused in the rain, chomping off bunny heads and toes.
Not this year. 4 days of sun and wind and not a sign of rain anywhere.
Three days of South Easters and one day of Southerlies = three days of Red Hill and one day of Kommetjie
Fun moments… doing formation with Damien Hinrichsen with the Fox and his Voltij… lots of shadows all over the place as the pilots got as close as possible without actually connecting… could be messy with glass ships…
then transfering that concept to the EPP BEE wings and having to apologies when your tape and plastic plane tapped someone else’s, which is quite common with 8 planes in the air…Rather odd to apologies for touching when you are used to squeeling with glee in the middle of a combat hit.
Some of the guys did indeed fly every day and by Easter Monday were showing inevitable signs of fatigue and being badly flown out. Brains done to a crisp, suntanned arms and faces and all laughed out…. just the way we like it.
