Four Whispers attended the EAA convention.
Peter Bain from PE, Dave Taylor and Carl Botha from Howick, Gary Whitecross from JHB and myself from Paradise Beach.
Jim Tucker in the YAK rumbled along with Peter to and from PE. Albert and Morne also joined us on Saturday at the show.

A great weekend seemed to be had by all and everyone is back home safely :D

Thanks to all concerned for flying the Whisper flag high!

FDI did 5.4hrs on the way up and 4.8hrs to get back. Fuel burn seemed to be around 16 litres per hr.

PS Gary says he is arranging our next fly in to Gariep!!
