Finally we managed to get the first 3 colour coded Impala’ s on the same slope at the same time.
Saturday and Sunday both produced very interesting South Easters in the middle of winter
and while Hout Bay barely showed a breeze, the Red Hill slope just cooked
under a perfect 30km/h South East breeze.
What a beautiful day, what a stunning setting and what a load of fun.
Formation flying is never easy and th attempt to have three of the same craft in the air
at the same time takes some kind of concentration. Even staying in more
or less the same place proved fairly difficult and it is going to take
more than a good few hours to perfect any kind of form.
One great learning curve coming up.
Hopeful someone got a few air shots as we were flying at the time
and I know Marc had a video running.
So here is a mug shot of the three pilots and their charges prior to the first launch.
