Simone Darne WA04009

Post by pdarne » Sat Oct 18, 2008 7:07 pm

Hi all, not to sure how this works but we'll give it a try! Our Whisper WA04009 was originally purchased by Doug Bradshaw and John Pope. John must have acquired the full share of the plane. John unfortunately passed away and never got to finish his project. We bought WA04009 on auction on the 10th May 2008. My daughter, Simone, is busy with her PPL at Algoa Flying School and the plane is for her. Dene Collett is busy with her plane and we’re hoping that it will fly early 2009.We're very happy with our purchase. :D and can't wait to be flying her!
