Black Eagle - Volksrust March 2007


Charl and Piet on the south slope.
Mike & Piet with their bagged Zagis.
Mike's is 2 meter span while Piet's is a standard 1,2 meter.

Mike unfortunately had a CofG problem and his is now looking a bit worse for ware after its altercation with the slope someway down the face. Piet was the one dispatched down the slope to fetch it while Mike directed rescue operation from the bottom, with a cell phone and a pair of binoculars. I'm told Piet has recovered, but looks a lot leaner for his efforts. The good news is that Mike's Zagi Elegance is flying again after some hasty repairs and lots of parcel tape.


Not much wind but some flying was possible with the lighter models.

Sunday dawned with a light wind from the NW as predicted , but that later swung around to the South. Again light but flyable with some thermal activity.
More photos and details report to follow.
