Well, I´d be happy if I could fly anything but I´m afraid the dream of life will stay only a dream. At least I can do it at PCs..... I´m happy for you mate, well done.

Any aircraft can roll, from the lowly cessna up. The only trick is keeping it together and in the air, but it will roll.......

The Hombre flying the Boeing in the picture most certainly didn't get fired. And he did it in front of God, everybody and his boss.

Musta been fun, pielkop!
Seriously, though, dude, I'm contemplating letting the rest of the folks on the forum here have a good laugh at your name translated into Engels! Haha!
It's definitely funnier in die moeder taal, though, man. Certain words are at their most effective in Afrikaans, for sure! Lekker, dude!
